Today’s media are currently reporting that Manchester City centre-back Eliaquim Mangala is to leave the Etihad, on loan to Everton until the end of the season.

One source suggests City will receive a loan fee of approximately £1m and that Everton will complete the deal later today.

On a personal note I have to say I won’t be shedding a tear. Having said that I won’t be sending a taxi to dive him to Goodison either.

In my opinion he hasn’t exactly set the world alight since joining City from Porto in 2014 for a whopping £32m. But hey, he’s not been dreadful either. I suppose he’s done okay!

Is he a Pep type of player?

NO. He’s too cumbersome, not quick enough on the ball and is prone to making mistakes. But hey, no one is perfect, right?

Will we see his return?

Hope not, especially now we have Aymeric Laporte, Benjamin Mendy, John Stones etc.

He’s on his way?

Good luck in Liverpool Eliaquim!
