Man Utd, Chelsea head-to-head for Porto defender Mangala

Manchester United and Chelsea are going head-to-head for Porto defender Eliaquim Mangala.

The Mirror says United boss David Moyes sent scouts to watch 22-year-old centre-half Mangala in a 3-0 win over Maritimo at the weekend, where Barcelona were also represented.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho tried to sign Mangala in June when he first return for a second spell in charge of the Stamford Bridge club.

Porto insist Mangala is not for sale but may struggle to resist offers in excess of £12m for the France international.
