Everton set to seal the deal for Manchester City defender
Everton are set to sign Manchester City defender Eliaquim Mangala on loan until the end of the season according to the British Press.
The 26 year old Frenchman hasn’t really played for the Citizens much over the last few seasons but was bought for nearly £32m from Porto when he was signed in 2014.
Mangala impressed for Valencia on loan last season making 32 appearances for the Primera división side.
Everton manager Sam Allardyce has been looking for a left footed defender to provide cover at centreback and leftback and Mangala seems to fit the bill.
City broke the club’s transfer record to land Aymeric Laporte from Athletic Bilbao on Tuesday for £57m freeing up space for Mangala to move. Newcastle United were also interested but baulked at the Frenchmans valuation.
Mangala has since been updated on FIFA 18 and also Football Manager. You can view the latest Games Jobs at www.globalgamesjobs.com
