Leicester midfielder Riyad Mahrez dropped a massive Chelsea hint almost along the lines of “come get me” in a conversation with team-mate Islam Slimani that was caught on camera.
“Hey, Chelsea are the Champions!” said Slimani while walking towards the dressing room before Leicester City’s 2-1 loss to Manchester City earlier today.
“They’re an incredible club,” replied Mahrez. “They’re a real club.”
Mahrez was linked to a move to Stamford Bridge last term, but the transfer never came through as he decided to stay and try his luck at Champions League football under Leicester this season.
N’Golo Kante did accept an offer from Chelsea, though, and looks like Mahrez is keen to join his former team-mate after the Blues were crowned champions of England last night.
Mahrez had a chance to clinch a 2-2 equalizer again Manchester City earlier in the day but couldn’t do so as his penalty attempt was disallowed by the referee for a double-touch.
