Report: Juventus want Nastasic but only at reduced rate

Juventus 2

Italian champions Juventus are poised to approach Manchester City for Matija Nastasic, but they will need a discount from his valuation.

Matija Nastasic's position at Manchester City has been jeopardised by the arrival of Eliaquim Mangala from Porto and Juventus may step in to lure him.

The Premier League champions finally completed their protracted deal for defender Mangala and Tuttosport suggests that the transfer could bring about a domino effect.

The newspaper predicts that Juventus could benefit from Nastasic feeling unsettled and pounce to strengthen their defensive ranks.

The Old Lady have been hoping to add some depth in defence and are expected to make a return to the transfer market.

However, Arsenal are also said to be looking at Nastasic and Juventus may struggle to compete with the Gunners financially.

Manchester City paid Fiorentina just under £12 million for Nastasic and Tuttosport suggests the Bianconeri will need to find a similar sum to persuade City to let him leave.

However, Spanish side Atletico Madrid are known admirers of Nastasic and could also enter the frame, sparking a bidding war.

Should Matija Nastasic leave Manchester City?
