The Daily Mail says Cityâ€™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 â€˜glamorousâ€™ 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.
