Manchester City defender Eliaquim Mangala has reportedly arrived in Portugal, where he’s set to sign for his old club Porto.
It’s local newspaper O Jogo who reports it today, saying the player has landed in Lisbon and will now have his medicals ahead of the move.
O Jogo says that Mangala already has an agreement with the Dragons, and also got to a deal with Manchester City so he can leave the club for free this summer.
Now these medicals represent a lot for the move, since Porto are concerned about the Frenchman’s current conditions.
O Jogo claims that should Mangala passes his medicals, then it’s very likely that he signs for the Dragons by the end of the week.
Porto want the transfer to be done as soon as possible so they can start replacing their defensive duo Éder Militão and Felipe, who are leaving for Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid, respectively.
Mangala played for Porto between 2011 and 2014, having made 95 appearances for the club. He moved to Manchester City on a €30m deal.
