Porto defender Mangala wants 'glamorous Man Utd over Man City'

Porto defender Eliaquim Mangala is resisting a move to Manchester City.

The Daily Mail says City's pursuit of top summer target Eliaquim Mangala is being complicated by the fact the French central defender would prefer a move to neighbours Manchester United.

Sources close to the player have indicated that Mangala believes United and Chelsea are more 'glamorous' clubs than City.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho does have a fancy for Mangala after losing David Luiz to Paris Saint-Germain but he is not a top target for new United boss Louis van Gaal as he looks to replace Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic.

Van Gaal is instead considering a move for German defender Mats Hummels of Borussia Dortmund.
