Valencia have signed Eliaquim Mangala on loan from Manchester City

Valencia, Spain – Manchester City defender Eliaquim Mangala has joined Spanish side Valencia on a season-long loan, Valencia has confirmed.

Mangala had fallen in Pep Guardiola’s depth chart, failing to appear in City’s first five games of the season.

The 25-year-old moved to the Etihad for a reported 49.4 million euros from Porto in August 2014 but has struggled to make an impact in his two seasons in the Premier League.

Mangala made just 47 appearances for the club and was not considered for any games upon the arrival of new boos Guardiola.
