Man City to swoop for Porto defender

Manchester City seem to be cursed with injuries at center-back currently and have to go with what they have after the transfer window slammed shut. They managed to bring in reinforcements in the form of Martin Demichelis, who then suffered a blow that means he will miss six weeks. City are already lining up moves for more troops in January. In today’s newspapers they are linked to Porto defender Eliaquim Mangala for a staggering £30 million.

By now, you’ve all probably seen Angel Di Maria’s dribble dummy that made Carles Puyol do the splits to help Real Madrid advance to the Copa del Rey finals past rival Barcelona.

With that in mind, we gotta ask, how skinned Puyol better: Denilson or Di Maria? Check out this video and cast your vote here.


We’re always used to seeing Zlatan Ibrahimovic headlining trick moves past opposing defenders. But what happens when the tables are reversed?
