Atletico Madrid have joined the battle for Porto defender Eliaquim Mangala.

The Sunday Express says Manchester City, Chelsea and Manchester United target Eliaquim Mangala has been offered to Atletico Madrid by his agent, Jorge Mendes.

Manchester City have already held unsuccessful talks with Porto over a move, while United and Chelsea have also registered their interest in the defender.

Mendes is now working closely with Atletico coach Diego Simeone and suggested Mangala's signing during strategy talks last week.
