TRANSFER Balls. A look at Eliaquim Mangala, the £35m-rated Porto central defender. As ever, the media’s aim is to link every top player with every top English club.

Last summer, the Mirror told us that Mangala was off to Barcelona. And the Star told us that this summer:

BARCELONA want to hijack Porto star Eliaquim Mangala’s proposed move to the Premier League.

The Metro added that Bayern Munich wanted the player.

Today the Guardian tells us that

Eliaquim Mangala would prefer Manchester United to Manchester City.

Oh, and:

Chelsea, Paris Saint-German and Real Madrid also on radar

So. Just seven top clubs want the player. Anything else?

Mangala previously said: “City or Chelsea? Chelsea because it is London.”

Wags might well argue, so why not United, then?
