Riyad Mahrez has been granted permission to miss Man City’s pre-season tour of Japan and South Korea to finalise his move to Saudi Arabia.
The treble winners have already seen Ilkay Gundogan leave this summer while Kyle Walker and Bernardo Silva have uncertain futures.
The 32-year-old Algeria international is due to have a medical this week ahead of signing a three-year contract.
However, he was an unused substitute for both the FA Cup and Champions League finals and Manager Pep Guardiola has opted to let him become the latest big-name recruit by a Saudi Pro-League side.
Since signing for City in 2018 from Leicester, Mahrez has won four Premier League titles, two FA Cups, three Carabao Cups and the Champions League.
