Cardiff City are willing to sell Bruno Ecuele Manga in the upcoming January transfer window, according to local media source Wales Online.
With his contract set to expire at the end of the season, Cardiff are keen to cash in on Bruno Manga now rather than risk losing him for nothing in the summer.
Neil Warnock has already acknowledged that some players will have to be sold so that new faces can be drafted in and he has identified Manga as one of these.
The 28-year-old is unlikely to be around for much of January as his nation – Gabon – embark on their African Cup of Nations 2017 campaign.
Manga is a key part of Gabon’s defence, having made over 40 international caps.
His absence might make him hard to shift in January, though.
Neil Warnock has accepted that he might have to take a loss on the former Angers and Lorient defender, who joined Cardiff for around £4m back in 2014.
The 6’1” centre half has not featured yet under Warnock after being a key man for the Bluebirds in the last couple of seasons and the form of Sol Bamba and Sean Morrison is likely to mean that Manga will continue to play a bit-part role for the foreseeable future at Cardiff.
