Eliaquim Mangala, Manchester City – DEF

Manchester City bolstered their back line when they picked up their sixth signing of the offseason in Mangala from FC Porto of the Premeira Liga. The central defender picked up three CAPS for France leading up to the 2014 World Cup, but while he did travel to Brazil with the club, he did not feature in the tournament. Mangala cited his desire for continued progress as a player in his move from Porto to Manchester City and the Premier League. City will open the season and their title defense on August 17th when they visit Newcastle United. Source: premierleague.com
