Riyad Mahrez was one of a multitude of big names to depart the Premier League for the Saudi Pro League last summer.

The Algeria winger spent five years at Manchester City and scored 15 times in their Treble-winning season, but despite remaining an important player in Pep Guardiola's squad he decided that it was time for a change at the end of the campaign.
