Eliaquim Mangala: Watch Man City's French £32m Target In Action
Good news City fans, outstanding French defender Eliaquim Mangala has been earmarked by sky-blue barons Man City.
According to the Manchester Evening News, Mangala - who has said previously that he fancies a move to West London and to Chelsea rather than Manchester - has found himself firmly in City's sights, as they look to upgrade glacial Martin Demechelis for an infinitely more mobile option. The 23-year-old Frenchman is a brilliant talent: fast, strong and good on the ball, he's been a revelation for Porto in recent seasons and if it wasn't for the unexpected French renaissance for quality young centre-halves, he'd surely be first choice for his national team too.
He's been valued at £32million, though. THIRTY-TWO. That's a lot of money.
