Claudio Ranieri: In-form Leicester star not for sale at any price

first_imgClaudio Ranieri believes Riyad Mahrez is priceless to Leicester after the winger’s stunning form. Algeria international Mahrez has scored four goals in his first three games this season to propel Leicester among the early-season pace-setters.They are joint second in the Barclays Premier League ahead of Tuesday’s trip to Bury in the Capital One Cup second round.Mahrez joined from Le Harve in 2014 and signed a new four-year contract in August and, ahead of the closure of the transfer window next week, Ranieri insisted Leicester will never be tempted to cash in.“We don’t sell him so there is no price,” he said. “We won’t sell him so it’s much better if they [other clubs] don’t ask.“I look at Riyad when we don’t have the ball, I’m trying to help him become the complete player, that is my job. “I want to improve him in the offensive line. He is improving every day, it’s important for him because he can get better. He’s young and only 24.”The Foxes are unbeaten ahead of their trip to Gigg Lane with Ranieri expected to make wholesale changes from the side which drew 1-1 with Tottenham at the weekend. 1 Riyad Mahrez last_img
