Eliaquim Mangala fully focussed on playing for Porto next season.
Porto defender Eliaquim Mangala has dismissed any rumours of a move away from the Portuguese champions this summer, after he was linked with a move to Chelsea recently.
The 22-year old made his debut for France last week, and his potential has been the reason for the interest from Jose Mourinho, who is looking to add a powerful and physical centre half to his Chelsea side next season.
However Mangala told Sky Sports that he is not worried about his future, and that he is fully committed to playing in Portugal next season.
“I not am preoccupied about my future,” Mangala said.
“There have been many rumours in the papers in the last few days, but I am very calm.
“My objective is to work each day and to progress in my club. I am only thinking about to follow up for Porto the next season.”
With David Luiz reportedly unsettled at the club, due to a difference of opinions regarding playing position with Jose Mourinho, Mangala is seen as a long-term investment for the club, and his potential to become a dominant Premier League defender, especially with John Terry entering the twilight years of his career at the club.
