Porto defender Eliaquim Mangala claims that Manchester City were interested in signing him at the end of the summer transfer window.

Porto defender Eliaquim Mangala has claimed that Manchester City tried to sign him at the end of the transfer window.

The 22-year-old was linked with a number of big European clubs over the summer, but a deal failed to happen.

"Manchester City were interested a few days ago, but nothing was ever close," the Frenchman told A Bola.

"I'm a Porto player and I feel good here. I have no problem with this issue. I am fine here and focused on what we can do this season."

Mangala joined Porto from Standard Liege in summer 2011.
