Man City told to pay €50m for Man United target

Published Add your comment

Porto have demanded that Manchester City stump up €50million if they want to sign prodigal centre-back Eliaquim Mangala, according to French newspaper L’Equipe.

The sources states that despite City offering a mooted €45million for the young Frenchman, who has also been targeted by Manchester United boss David Moyes, Porto are holding out for the maximum amount they can obtain from his sale.

It’s claimed that the Portuguese giants have told the Citizens that only a fee of €50million, which according to A Bola is his release clause, will be enough to prize Mangala away from his current club and allow a switch to the Premier League.

Interest has been high in the 22-year-old since last summer, with Chelsea and United being credited at different stages.

United are believed to have sent scouts to frequent Porto’s recent matches this year, and so the news that City may be about to secure their target in a blockbuster deal could prompt some sort of action from Moyes.
