Schalke along with Serie A pair enter race to sign Manchester City ace

Manchester City are on the verge of losing Matija Nastasic for around £10million after Schalke and AC Milan have been joined by Lazio in chase for the centre back, Express reports.

The 21-year-old is yet to make a Premier League appearance this season as a number of clubs are already preparing to lure the defender away from the Etihad.

Instead of solving his lack of centre-backs by turning to his available players, Manuel Pellegrini opted to sign Eliaquim Mangala for a fee of £32million, denting any hopes of Nastasic making his way into the first team.

It is believed that City are not keen on letting him leave, but could listen to offers if the trio of interested parties can raise his asking price by trying to beat one another for his signature.

Pellegrini may want to add to his finances this season in order to avoid any more Financial Fair Play sanctions and with the Serbian last featuring in August, his days are beginning to look numbered.
