Done Deal: FC Porto sell Eliaquim Mangala to Manchester City for €40m (!) [O Jogo Front Page]

Having already signed Fernando a couple of weeks back, Manchester City have gone fishing at Porto once again it seems, though they’ve spent a lot more than the €15m they splashed on the aforementioned Brazilian midfielder.

O Jogo’s front page today confirms it: Manchester City have signed Porto’s Eliaquim  Mangala for a whopping…€40m!

The French centre-half made 51 appearances for Porto in his 3 seasons at the Portuguese club, and is a defender noted for his strength and ball-playing abilities.

€40m for a player who didn’t even play a minute at the World Cup for France?

Bit steep no?

Porto really are the masters of buying cheap, selling high. The happiest selling club in the world.
