€40m Star Arrives in Manchester to Complete Big Money Move

Mangala Porto City UnitedManchester United lose out on top quality defensive transfer target Eliaquim Mangala of Porto who will be joining rivals Manchester City.
Both Manchester club have been tracking the French international for the past few months and the premier league champions have won the race.
According to Goal, Mangala has arrived in Manchester to undergo medical and complete €40m move to the Citizens.
The 23 year old central defender is one of the most highly rated defenders around and was quality for Porto last season.
His brilliant form earned him a place in France’s World Cup squad, however the Mangala remained on the bench in all 5 games as the starting lineup was dominated by Varane, Sakho and Koscielny.
The tall and strong defender has got all the attributes to be a hit for Manchester City and will form a strong partnership with arguably the best center half of the league, City captain Vincent Company.
As per the provided link, Eliaquim Mangala will be earning a salary of €113,000-a-week which is not really as high as compared to majority of their stars’.
Perhaps the Red Devils would have paid him more but with Manchester City, Mangala can play at the top level in the Champions League where as Manchester United will not be featuring in Europe at all.
Citizens already have a brilliant attack as they scored no less than 102 league goals last term. Mangala will largely improve their defense as well and make them even stronger going into the next season to retain their crown.

    What happened to fair play rules I thought PSG and Man City were restricted on spending yet both clubs are still spending big. Hope the brakes are put on spending soon and a cap on wages before all these super wealthy owners ruin our competitions
