Moyes makes Mangala top Man Utd defensive target

Manchester United boss David Moyes is stepping up their interest in Porto defender Eliaquim Mangala. The Daily Star says Moyes had him watched for a THIRD time on Sunday when he starred in Porto's 2-1 win at Gil Vicente.

Moyes wants Mangala to replace Nemanja Vidic in what will be a much-changed back four at Old Trafford next season, but faces competition from Chelsea and Manchester City for the centre-back.

Mangala, 23, has a £35m buy-out clause in his Porto contract, but Moyes has been promised unlimited funds to rebuild the fading champions and is ready to make his move for a player tracked by former United boss Sir Alex Ferguson.
