"The idea that this is a cultural thing, that he's a footballer and it's of human interest - we all have to deal with adversity, we all have to deal with situations where we can't get what we want".

The Algeria worldwide has embarked on a self-imposed strike since his move to Manchester City in January fell through.

It had been previously revealed that the young english winger Patrick Roberts, now on loan at Celtic, was included in as part of City's £65m bid for Mahrez.

According to both newspapers, Pep has not been impressed at how Mahrez has behaved since his proposed transfer to the Etihad collapsed, with the 26-year-old going on strike at the King Power Stadium and refusing to train.

Riyad Mahrez is seeking a guarantee that he will be allowed to leave Leicester City this summer in an attempt to end his stand-off with the club.

Firstly, they'll face a weakened Leicester side this weekend.

Leicester officials are trying to help facilitate Mahrez's return to the squad as he is said to be in a fragile state of mind with the PFA offering assistance.

Taylor referred to similar cases in which the PFA had been mediator, including Luis Suarez's attempt to force a move to Arsenal from Liverpool in 2013, and the situation involving ex-West Brom striker Peter Odemwingie, who drove to west London and parked his vehicle outside Loftus Road in the hope of a transfer to QPR, in the same year.

In breaching his contract so blatantly, he has done his personal brand real damage, and despite super-agent Kia Joorabchian having recently taken over as the Algerian's representative, his actions suggest he is still being advised by the inexperienced Kamel Bengougam.

As is typical of his style, he is putting those available to him first, but there is no doubt that he will be a key figure in bringing Mahrez back from the brink when he finally comes to his senses. Absolutely no one is winning from him continuing to stay away.
