Eliaquim Mangala: Linked with a move to England

Porto defender Eliaquim Mangala has been left flattered by speculation linking him with a move to Manchester United in the summer.

Reports have claimed the Red Devils are among clubs keeping tabs on Mangala as they look to bolster their defensive options next season

Mangala switched to the Portuguese outfit from Standard Liege in 2011 and helped the club retain their title last season.

The 22-year-old, who has represented France at Under-21 level, is flattered by the speculation, but he acknowledged his current club would have a say in any potential transfer.

He told Sky Sports: "I am definitely flattered by the interest of such a big club like Manchester United, any player would be.

"I have a contract here until 2016 so even if I want to go, Porto will have their say in the transfer."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
