Earlier today it appeared as though City may land Porto duo Fernando and Eliaquim Mangala.
However, Stuart Brennan of the MEN this afternoon tweeted that both deals were off, although they may be resurrected in the summer.
Mangala and Fernando deals are both off, could be resurrected in summer. City expect no deals to be done before deadline.— Stuart Brennan (@StuBrennanMEN) January 31, 2014
The fact remains that City were, and still are, in for Mangala and Fernando, but it will have to be in the summer.— Stuart Brennan (@StuBrennanMEN) January 31, 2014
There remains just over four hours or so until the deadline ends but as things stands it appears as though City may be standing pat in terms of squad movement.
