Valencia Recruit Eliaquim Mangala
DBasia.news – Manchester City defender, Eliaquim Mangala, has fully moved permanently to another club. Valencia recruited him and signed him for two years.
Eliaquim Mangala has been defending Manchester City since 2014. At that time, The Citizens recruited Mangala from Portuguese football giant FC Porto with a tag of 32 million euros.
When brought in, Eliaquim Mangala was predicted as the best candidate for a defender in Europe. Unfortunately, Mangala arguably failed to meet these predictions.
Indeed, Eliaquim Mangala had performed neatly in his first two seasons at Manchester City. Unfortunately, Mangala failed to show consistency until he was knocked out on the bench.
These conditions make Eliaquim Mangala more often lent. In the 2016-2017 season, the 28-year-old defender was loaned to Valencia before experiencing the same thing in January 2018.
Unfortunately, a series of injuries hampered Eliaquim Mangala’s career at Manchester City. Mangala has never played since January 2018.
Now Eliaquim Mangala is again trying his luck at LaLiga with Valencia. The French defender hopes Los Che can help resurrect his career.
“Valencia reached an agreement with Eliaquim Mangala. This makes the French defender will defend Valencia until 30 June 2021,” wrote an official Valencia statement.
Eliaquim Mangala joined Valencia on a transfer-free status. That was after Manchester City did not renew Mangala’s contract.
