Porto defender Eliaquim Mangala admits that it is the "best feeling" to be linked with a move to Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur.

Porto defender Eliaquim Mangala has revealed that he would like to test himself in the Premier League in the future.

Reports have linked Mangala with a move to Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur, and while the French Under-21 international insists that he is focused on playing for Porto, he has admitted that he is flattered at being linked with a move to England.

The 22-year-old told Sky Sports News: "I have a contract here till June 2016, however all players want to play one day in the top league in Europe. 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."

Mangala has made 29 appearances for Porto this season.
