Mangala played almost 100 games for the Portuguese giants and has followed Fernando in leaving Porto for City. The pair have been joined by Malaga goalkeeper Willy Caballero, Arsenal’s Bacary Sagna and young Argentine midfielder Bruno Zuculini in making permanent moves to the Etihad Stadium, with ex-Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard signing on loan from New York City FC.


“City is a top club in Europe. For me, it was an important step to leave Porto and join Manchester City in order to continue my progress,” Mangala said. “I want to win titles and I believe I can do this. I am ambitious and this is why I am here.


“I’m very happy to come to England because, for me, the Premier League is the best league in the world,” he continued. “It is a very intense and very aggressive competition. There are plenty of goals, so it is also really nice to watch and I can’t wait to get started.


“The fact that Fernando is here is better because I played with him at Porto but there is also other players that I know like Sagna, (Gael) Clichy and (Samir) Nasri.”


Mangala moved to Porto in 2011, moving from Belgian outfit Standard Liege. The 23-year-old has three caps for France and was part of Les Bleus’ World Cup squad, although didn’t feature this summer in Brazil.
