Could Man City star Mahrez follow Benzema & Kante to Saudi Pro League?
Mahrez is still at the top of his game, with five goals and 10 assists in just 22 Premier League starts in the 2022-23 season.
But the Algerian will be disappointed with the lack of gametime and might not be in manager Pep Guardiola's long-term plans.
Saudi Pro League movement
Cristiano Ronaldo moved to the league in January and earns a staggering €200 million per season at Al-Nassr.
Karim Benzema signed a three-year contract with Al-Ittihad on a salary worth an incredible €200m a year. He will make €600m during his time at the club.

Europe’s biggest-ever salary is €75m a year, which Messi earned at Barcelona. This demonstrates just how much money is on offer for players in Saudi Arabia.
Expect many more superstars to transfer to the league in the coming months and years.
