Man City on verge of big capture as Director in town for talks

Manchester City are ready to tie up a deal for £20million-rated Porto defender Eliaquim Mangala.

The big French international is rated as one of the best young defenders in the game and was heavily tipped to sign for Barcelona in the summer.

However, with the Spanish giants receiving a 14-month transfer ban, City sporting director Txiki Begiristain was in Portugal on Thursday night to try and get a deal wrapped up according to the Daily Mirror website.

The former Standard Liege stopper came close to moving to the Etihad in January, but a proposed £38million double swoop for him and club colleague Fernando, a midfielder, collapsed on deadline day.
