Juventus 'plotting swoop for Manchester City defender Matija Nastasic'

Juventus are linked with a bid for Manchester City youngster Matija Nastasic.

Juventus are said to be planning to lodge a bid for Manchester City defender Matija Nastasic.

The Italian giants require defensive cover for the opening months of the new season, with mainstay Andrea Barzagli recovering from surgery.

The Old Lady are hoping to take Nastasic on loan initially, with the option of a permanent move included, according to talkSPORT.

Nastasic, who joined City from Fiorentina in 2012, managed only 11 Premier League starts last term, his season marred by injuries.

City are yet to confirm whether they would be willing to loan the player out.
