Asked if he was anxious about the challenge of getting into the City side, Mahrez said: "No, I never thought about that". It's a goal. Now we have to work and see what can happen.
"That's why I'm here, why I made the decision to come here, because I want to be part of this". "They want to go further in Europe each season and I am here to try and help them".
"The prices have been big in every country".
The Algeria global faces competition for his place, with Leroy Sane, Bernardo Silva, Kevin de Bruyne and Raheem Sterling already operating on the wing but Mahrez says every club has "great" players and competition is "part of football". "If I can help add quality". You can improve yourself and the squad.
"If I moved sooner, maybe i would have been happy, now I'm happy to be here. the most important thing".
'They broke all the records in the Premier League which is unbelievable and I never wavered.
"It's a club who wants to win this type of trophy".
"I am so pleased to have joined City, a side playing great football under Pep Guardiola", Mahrez told City's official website.
Mahrez believes an England that featured three of his new teammates were quite unlucky to exit the World Cup yesterday after being eliminated by Croatia. He has been in contact with former team-mates Harry Maguire and Jamie Vardy over the last month. "I'm very happy and will give my best to this club". They deserve a lot of credit for what they have achieved because reaching the semi final is very, very hard.
