"Forget the second team".

The Algerian star attempted to force through a late deal to the Premier League champions-elect, but was priced out of a move by the Foxes.

Mahrez's reaction, however, suggests that the club have miscalculated badly. If you're the academy or reserve team manager at Manchester City, you must think, "I'm wasting my time"'.

'Stones yes, Silva no, ' said Guardiola. Gary Neville can be happy. He is making a huge effort and doing really well.

For his part, Mahrez released a statement on Friday in which he said he said "presumptions" about his absence were "totally without foundation".

Leicester's biggest problem right now is Riyad Mahrez.

"We know it's a difficult situation, but we needed to look forward and to continue this hard work".

Riyad Mahrez would have been the player to watch were he expected to feature, but he will reportedly sit out the match. It's not a joke, never is it a joke. "Everybody got a rest".

Leicester have lost their last nine league fixtures against sides that started the day top of the league, scoring three goals and conceding 20.

The last year has also witnessed significant inflation in transfer fees as the world record was more than doubled in August by Neymar's 222 million euro (then $262 million) move from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain.

Pep Guardiola's side are looking for a 13th straight league win at the Etihad Stadium.

But, there was still some controversy surrounding the whole debacle to surface on Friday, as Mahrez himself released quite a telling statement.

Sane was sidelined following a rash challenge from Cardiff City's Joe Bennett in a 2-0 FA Cup fourth round victory two weeks ago.

On Mahrez, Guardiola added: "Hopefully he will come back soon to play football".

Asked about Warnock's comments, Guardiola said: 'We accept everything. "The squad has good quality, strength and when I saw their attitude in training, they have taken their responsibilities".

'They can do whatever they want.

"Leicester came to pick up Kelechi [Iheanacho], we did it. In all transfers, the clubs call the clubs, it's simple like that".
