Mangala happy with Prem links

Porto defender Eliaquim Mangala is flattered to be linked with
moves to Manchester United and Tottenham.

Reports have claimed United and Tottenham are keeping tabs on
Mangala as they look to bolster their defensive options next
season.

Italian giants AC Milan are also thought to be confirmed
admirers of Mangala as Porto brace themselves for moves for the
centre-back.

The 22-year-old has impressed for Porto this season in the UEFA
Champions League and he is regarded as one of the best young
defensive talents in Europe.

Mangala insists he is happy at Porto, but admits he would be
interested in a move to the Premier League.

“I have a contract here till June 2016, however all players want
to play one day in the top league in Europe,” Mangala told Sky
Sports. “I am no different to that.

“To be linked with clubs of the stature of Tottenham or
Manchester United is the best feeling.

“I want to finish the season strongly and see at the end of the
season if the reports are true.”
