A report claims that a flight from Porto is due to land in Manchester this afternoon, amid speculation linking Nicolas Otamendi, Eliaquim Mangala and Fernando with the city's two clubs.

A private jet from Porto has reportedly set off for Manchester.

It is believed that the plane will land at Manchester Airport at 3.23pm this afternoon, amid reports that Manchester City are keen to sign Porto duo Eliaquim Mangala and Fernando.

It is not known if both players are present on the flight, which is expected to land at a private terminal, according to the Manchester Evening News.
