Manchester City are ready to break the bank again for a new summer signing.
The Mirror says City are considering splashing out £40million to buy French defender Eliaquim Mangala.
The deposed Premier League champions are looking for centre-back cover following injuries to captain Vincent Kompany, Matija Nastasic and Micah Richards.
To sign Mangala however, they will need to pay the £40m buy-out clause in his Porto contract, which runs until 2016.
