Mangala flattered by Chelsea interest

FC Porto defender Eliaquim Mangala says he is flattered by interest from Chelsea, but is in no hurry to leave his current club.

Mangala is reportedly being pursued by Jose Mourinho, with the Portuguese coach - understood to be favourite to take over from Rafa Benitez at Stamford Bridge - hopeful of making the 22-year-old his first major signing, according to The Sun.

However, a transfer fee is yet to be agreed upon, with the Blues balking at Porto’s asking price of £30 million.

For his part, Mangala is happy to remain in Portugal, but would move to Chelsea if he can be guaranteed regular first-team football.

"It's flattering because Chelsea are a great club and Mourinho is a great coach," Mangala is quoted as saying in The Sun.

"I intended to stay in Porto but you never know what will happen in football, especially when big clubs are involved.

"At Porto I play every week and I am involved in the title fight and the Champions League. And that is important to me."

Mangala joined Porto from Standard Liege two years ago on a just £5.5 million transfer.
