Manchester City defender Matija Nastasic could make a move to Italian side Roma, according to

The young Serbian centre-back, 21, looks set for a move to the Serie A, as he wants to secure more first-team action. Roma are heading into the new season looking to take that final step up and take the title off rivals Juventus after an impressive second place finish in the 2013/14 campaign.

And they will try to do this with the addition of high quality players to their side, as former Premier League and Chelsea man Ashley Cole signed on last week.

Also they have been handed another potential chance at next season’s title race, as long term Juventus manager Antonio Conte has resigned and it seems two of their midfield stars, Arturo Vidal and Paul Pogba could be heading for the exit.

Nastasic, who has made 34 appearances in his two seasons for the Citizens, could be heading to the Italian capital as means to make way for French defender Eliaquim Mangala as Man City see the Serbian defender surplus to requirements.


But Man City will try to hold out for €19 million from the club, with other Italian sides Inter Milan and former club Fiorentina also in the race and ready to snap up the young talent if a move to Roma falls through.

A player that was supposed to be heading in the other direction was highly rated Moroccan international Mehdi Benatia, but Man City have cooled their interest in the player after a deal was agreed for Porto’s Mangala. So Benatia and Nastasic could still be playing together next season, at Roma, not Man City.
