Chelsea transfer news: Mangala cool on Blues link

FC Porto defender Eliaquim Mangala says he is not paying any interest to the various reports linking him with a move to Chelsea.

Mangala joined the Portuguese league champions from Standard Liege and has since impressed during his time at the Estadio do Dragao, in turn prompting interest from abroad.

Jose Mourinho has been credited with interest in the past and since his arrival at Stamford Bridge it is understood that the 50 year-old will look to revive interest in the Frenchman.

Speaking on the interest, Mangala said: "I not am preoccupied about my future,"

"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."

This is unlikely to be the last we hear of Chelsea's interest in Mangala, with Mourinho looking to establish a new team at Stamford Bridge.
