Manchester United are moving for Porto defender Eliaquim Mangala.

The Daily Star says United are in contention to hijack Manchester City's bid for Mangala.

The 23-year-old is Manuel Pellegrini's top summer transfer target as he looks to find a partner for captain Vincent Kompany.

City are ready to splash out £30m, but United have been told he would prefer a move to Old Trafford.

New United boss Louis van Gaal is still contemplating who he needs to fill the void left by the departures of Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic.
