After asking for a few hours to think about it, it seems as though Eliaquim Mangala has made a decision about his future and gave Manchester City the green light to accept a £20 million offer from Crystal Palace for the French defender, at least according to the London Evening Standard.

The report says that Palace are still looking at Liverpool defender Mamadou Sakho who played at Selhurst Park on loan last season, but Sakho is injured and the deal might not go through. Mangala seems to be Frank De Boer’s alternative to Sakho, and a deal could be completed today.
If City are able to get £20 million for Mangala, then they’ll have enough funds to convince West Bromwich Albion to sell Jonny Evans.
PLEASE MAKE IT HAPPEN.
