In-form Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez was on the score-sheet again in his side’s 2-0 win against Watford at the King Power Stadium on Saturday, and Manchester United fans have urged their club to sign the 26-year-old before the January transfer window slams shut.
After a tough start to the campaign under former Foxes boss Craig Shakespeare, the Algeria international has found form since Claude Puel took the reins, helping the east Midlands outfit climb up to seventh.
The attacker has now scored eight goals and provided a further eight assists in 24 Premier League appearances in all competitions this season, although Puel has said he isn’t leaving this month and could be worth £100m in the summer.
Man United supporters were quick to have their say on his display, and while one said “sign Mahrez then send Rashford to Everton”, another said he has the “perfect profile to be a United winger”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…

Why don't we try to sign Mahrez? Complete winger attributes, is actually very good at playmaking too. Perfect profile to be a United winger. Can play in CL. And so on.
