Riyad Mahrez has decided to give up waiting for Barcelona. The attacker wanted to move from Leicester to Camp Nou but Barcelona have other priorities in the market. In the end his signing would only be possible if Verratti does not sign for Barcelona and the club sitl lhave hopes of that. So Mahrez will look instead to Arsenal where he is considering the four year deal they are presenting.
Verratti and Bellerin are Barcelona's priorities and they are sure the full-back will arrive, while focusing efforts on negotiating with PSG for the Italian. But if there is no white smoke Barcelona will also look for a winger, and Mahrez was one of the options. He would cost 40m euros.
