Mangala Still on United Radar

January 31st, the last day of the January transfer window, saw Eliaquim Mangala become the subject of a transfer bid by Manchester City.

Our neighbours tried to sign the FC Porto centre back as part of a double deal that would have also brought a midfielder Ferdinand to the Etihad Stadium.

However, the move never happened and now it is being reported that Manchester United are set to go head-to-head with City for the capture of Mangala this summer.

It`s widely acknowledged that with Rio Ferdinand said to be retiring this summer and Nemanja Vidic set to leave for pastures new, United will be in the hunt for a new centre back.

However, with FC Porto wanting a cool 35 million for the centre back it could, as you`d expect, be an expensive problem area to sort out.

More waffle. Mangala's on our radar now 2 days after the window shuts, what is going on at the club.

With my preferred choice Zouma having signed for Chelsea I can't think of a better alternative than Mangala to be Ferdinand's long terms successor. No deal is ever going to happen though with anyone outside of the big spenders in France if Porto insist on the 35 mil buyout clause.
