The 27-year-old said it was the club’s high ambition which first attracted him
The Algerian joined the Premier League champions in a club-record £60million deal on Tuesday.
And Mahrez, 27, claims he made the decision to move to City because of the club’s ambition.
He said: “The Champions League is for big clubs, they’re a big club, they have everything to try to win it.
“City have ambition to go further than the Champions League quarter-finals like they did last season. I made the decision to come here because I want to be part of that.
“Pep [Guardiola] is a big manager, he’s won a lot of things and made history with this club.
