Manchester City defender Eliaquim Mangala I set to join Laliga side Valencia CF on a two-year deal the club has confirmed.
In a statement on their website, Valencia said: “Valencia CF have reached an initial agreement with Eliaquim Mangala for the French defender to join the club through to June 30th, 2021.
“The agreement is pending the completion of the definitive paperwork.”
