Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini may block his unhappy England players from leaving this summer.

The Mail on Sunday says Pellegrini's priority is £35million Porto defender Eliaquim Mangala as a quality replacement for Joleon Lescott, who is out of contract and set to leave.

James Milner and Micah Richards may be forced to stay, even though they are unhappy about not getting enough first-team football.
