Man City has signed Jeremy Doku on a five-year contract.
The youngster has been identified as one of the perfect replacements for Mahrez by Pep Guardiola and City agreed to a €65 million deal for his signature.
Doku has become City’s third signing of the summer after the arrival of Croatian internationals Mateo Kovacic and Josko Gvardiol.
The Belgium international has scored 12 goals in 91 games for Rennes since arriving from Anderlecht in 2020.

“Manchester City are the best team in world football, so to be joining them is something very special for me and my family,” Doku told the Man City website.
“I am a young player with so much learning and improving to do. Working with Pep and his staff, and playing alongside these work-class players, will make me a much better player. I feel sure of that.”
Man City are also looking for a replacement for injured Kevin de Buryne who has been ruled out until the new year due to his hamstring injury.
