Valencia managed to get Elliaquim Mangala, the French defender was recruited by Valencia from Manchester City. Valencia did not spend any money to get Eliaquim Mangala from Manchester City because Mangala's contract was up at Manchester City last season.
This is the second time Mangala played at Valencia, before in the 2016-2017 season he had also been in a Valencia uniform. In the 2016/2017 season Mangala became a loan player after losing his main position in the Manchester City squad. At first when he was recruited from Fc Porto in the 2014/2015 season, Mangala was a Manchester City core player but Mangala could not meet expectations so slowly he was on the Manchester City bench.
So moving to Valencia is a realistic choice for Eliaquim Mangala, because at Valencia Mangala was contracted for 2 seasons
