Kompany Offered 6-Yr City Deal

????????????????????????Manchester City want Vincent Kompany to finish his career at the club and will offer him a package totalling £60million for the privilege.

The 28-year-old only signed his last deal at the Etihad Stadium in 2012 but Manuel Pellegrini wants the central defender to pen a new contract worth £200,000-a-week for the next six years.

Kompany, linked with Barcelona this summer, has been at the bedrock of City’s back four since joining from Hamburg in 2008.

And while the Premier League champions are close to clinching the signature of Porto’s Eliaquim Mangala in what has been the summer’s most protracted transfer, the club captain will remains City’s main man.

Mangala will move to Manchester for £32m as Pellegrini looks to shore up a defence that looked shaky in spells last season.

While Martin Demichelis’ form improved drastically in the run-in, City want a viable long-term option and Matija Nastasic has not kicked on as hoped, largely down to persistent injuries.

As for Kompany, the Belgian looks set to pocket another £5m by way of contractual bonuses.

Meanwhile Manchester City remain confident of securing the £32million transfer of Porto defender Eliaquim Mangala.

The 23-year-old Frenchman visited Manchester last month to ratify the deal and the video footage of his trip was embarrassingly leaked on the club’s website.

The hold-up is understood to be down to City and Porto ironing out the third party ownership involved with the player which is not allowed in this country.

The video clip on the Man-chester City website appeared to show Mangala undergoing a medical, and described him as ‘City’s newest signing’.

The club later said that their system had been hacked and that the video was not intended to be released.

Ferran Soriano last week said that Mangala would be City’s last transfer business of the summer after they had finalised the loan deal of Frank Lampard from New York City. — dailymail
