Cape Town - Champions Manchester City will make one more signing in the transfer window as the club concludes it's transfer activity.

After bringing in Bacary Sagna, Fernando Reges, Willy Caballero and Bruno Zuculini during this transfer window, the club's CEO Ferran Sorriano revealed that the reigning English Premiership champions will making one last signing in this window.

According to the Manchester Evening News, the last addition is like to be Eliaquim Mangala of Porto.

City have been chasing the player for some time but reports suggest that the deal could be done during the course of next week.

"We don't plan season by season, we plan in cycles. And cycles can be three, four, five seasons. One year ago, we knew the positions we wanted to reinforce in the team and we did it," the club's CEO Soriano told the Men In Blazers podcast.

We have a new right-back, we having a holding midfielder, we'll have a new central defender and that's it. We don't need to sign new players for the sake of it.

"We need to sign players that the team needs because the team has a balance. To win you need to keep the balance.

"Our squad is very strong and it's the second year that they play with Manuel Pellegrini, so they'll do much better." said Soriano.

Roma's Mehdi Benatia has been linked with a move to Manchester for some time but with City operating under sanctions from UEFA, it seems that Mangala will be the last name added to Manuel Pellegrini 's squad ahead of the 2014/15 season.
