Barca target Porto pair – report

Reports in Marca suggest that Barcelona could make moves for Porto pair Nicolas Otamendi and Eliaquim Mangala.

Stories emerged earlier this week that the Blaugrana had decided not to sign a centre-back this summer after having moves rejected for Daniel Agger and David Luiz.

But the Madrid-based newspaper has claimed that Tata Martino’s men have had second thoughts, and could offer for one of the Dragoes defenders.

Otamendi has become ever-present for the Portuguese side since his arrival from Velez Sarsfield in 2010.

22-year-old Mangala meanwhile, has made his debut for the France national team this year.
