Key Manchester City defender could follow Riyad Mahrez to the Saudi Pro League this summer 

Manchester City star Kyle Walker is reportedly considering a move to Saudi Arabia, (h/t the Sun).

The 33-year-old has been a key member of the starting XI over the years, lifting five Premier League trophies and the Champions League with the club.

But the England international could end his association with City this summer by opting to join the Saudi Pro League (SPL). 

Walker has sought advice from his former teammate Riyad Mahrez about relocating to the Middle East. 

Mahrez left the Manchester giants last year to join Al-Ahli in a big-money move. 

The Algerian reportedly earns £45 million per year with the Saudi outfit and Walker could also make a similar sum if he decides to play in the SPL. 

The experienced right-back is happy at City but wants to keep all his options open ahead of the summer transfer window

Losing Walker would be a big blow for the Cityzens as he has been one of the most important members of Pep Guardiola’s team this season. 

He has made over 40 appearances across all competitions this campaign, bagging five assists.

The 33-year-old arrived at the Etihad Stadium from Tottenham Hotspur in 2017 in a deal worth around £50 million. 

He has tallied six goals and 23 assists in 296 appearances across all competitions.
