Liverpool returns to sign Riyadh Mahrez after Philippe Coutinho complete the transfer of Barcelona

Nicol believes that Mahrez would be ideal substitute for Coutinho, but conceded that the player of 26 years would be a signature perfect for the boss of Manchester United, Jose Mourinho.

Mahrez is a player of quality,” said Nicol on ESPN.

I would like to see in Liverpool if they are disposed of Coutinho, sorry, if they sold Coutinho“.

Therefore, for Man United, I think that this will give them something a little different in the future“.

“Leicester has won the Premier League and when Leicester won the Premier League, they had a quality as him and (Jamie) Vardy.

“But they all have played with the defensive side, including this guy.

“Therefore, it would be a player ‘Mourinho’. Not only on the defensive plan, but on the absolute quality. This would be a success for Manchester united if this occurred. ”

Leicester has signed Mahrez for only £300 000 in January 2014 on the French side Le Havre and it is said that they want more of £ 40m to sell the Algerian footballer.
