Riyad Mahrez became the most expensive African footballer ever when he transferred from to Manchester City for $83 million in the summer of 2018.

He won the Premier League, FA Cup, and EFL Cup in his first season with the Sky Blues, adding to that miraculous Premier League title he won with Leicester City in 2015.

The Algerian winger signed a contract extension with City last summer, earning him $240,000 weekly. He finished the 2021-22 season as the team's top goal scorer with 24 strikes, getting his third league title with City. Not too shabby for the king of ball control.

The 31-year-old is a mainstay of the City attack. Let's take a look at how the playmaker spends his millions.

Mahrez's Houses

Mahrez owns a $2.5 million apartment in downtown Manchester. The city-center pad features three bedrooms, multiple bathrooms, and unreal panorama views.

Mahrez lives there along with his partner and model, Taylor Ward, who built a walk-in closet and had marble floors installed. The couple shares a daughter together.

In May 2020, burglars broke into his house and stole $371,000 of luxury .

Mahrez's Cars

Like most footballer millionaires, Mahrez owns a garage full of luxury cars. He holds a $150,000 Mercedes Benz AMG G63, a $60,000 Audi A6, a $150,000 blue BMW i8 — a gift from winning the Premier League at Leicester days — and a black $160,000 Bentley Bentayga.

He also owns a BMW i8 in white.

Mahrez's Watches

In May 2020, burglars broke into Mahrez's apartment and stole three luxury watches totaling $371,000. Those watches included a $283,000 ultra-rare Mille timepiece, a $50,000 Rolex Daytona, and a $43,000 Rolex Day Date.

Chances are Mahrez has since replaced those expensive wristwatches but is warier in flashing them in photos — you never know who's watching.


Mahrez's vacations

Mahrez enjoys the occasional luxury holiday and often flies out to some of the world's most exotic locations. In the summer of 2021, the winger partied with Erling Haaland (then a player) in Mykonos, Greece.

“I saw him in Mykonos and he said to me he really wanted to come. I said you should because it's the best club. A year later he's here,” said Mahrez.

Mahrez also likes to spend holidays in Marrakech, as he did after winning the 2021/22 Premier League last season. With traditional souks to boutique hotels and rooftop restaurants, the red city is consistently rated one of the best places to visit in the world.
