Man Utd join Chelsea and Man City in race for Porto star

Manchester United have reportedly joined the race to sign highly-rated Porto defender Eliaquim Mangala.

The Guardian reports that United are ready to make a move for the 22-year-old in the January transfer window.

United boss David Moyes sees the young defender as the perfect long-term replacement for either Rio Ferdinand or Nemanja Vidic.

Mangala joined Porto from Standard Liege in 2011 for €6.5million.

United face competition from the likes of Chelsea, Manchester City, Monaco and Paris Saint-Germain in the race to sign the defender, who has a €45million buyout clause in his contract.
