Eliaquim Mangala Manchester City FC

Joins City

11 Aug, 2014

The 23 year old player signs a five year contract with Manchester City. The French central defender comes over from FC Porto. He has three caps for France and was a part of the French squad during the 2014 World Cup, although he saw no action during that tournament. His jersey number will be 20.

City is a top club in Europe. For me, it was an important step to leave Porto and join Manchester City in order to continue my progress. I want to win titles and I believe I can do this. I am ambitious and this is why I am here.
