Published 2 Comments

Manchester City have made a £38 million bid for Porto defender Eliaquim Mangala, reports

The Citizens appear desperate to add to their back-line before the end of this month's transfer window and Manuel Pellegrini has now stepped up in his interest for the French international. 

Mangala has been a key member of Porto's side in recent time, but could now be heading to the Premier League. 

It had been reported that the Citizens had scouted the 22-year-old and Porto would be ready to let the defender depart the club in this window

Before the opening of the transfer window, City's rivals Manchester United had been tipped to make a move for the defender. 

It appeared that Manchester United boss David Moyes had made the signing of Mangala a priority, however it now seems that City are in pole position. 

It remains to be seen as to whether Manchester United will rival Manchester City in a bid for the player's services before the shut of the window.
