Inter strike Mangala deal?

Inter have reportedly agreed a loan deal for Eliaquim Mangala, with Manchester City paying part of his wage.

With Jeison Murillo set to join Valencia, the Nerazzurri are in need of a new centre-back, and it has been reported in recent days that the French international is one of their targets.

Following reports from the UK that a deal is close, Premium Sport is reporting that the two clubs have come to a deal.

The transfer will see Mangala move to the Beneamata on a straight loan deal, with no option or obligation to buy.

In addition, the English club will pay part of his salary for the duration of the loan, as his reported wages of €110,000 per week is out of Inter’s price range.
