There is word from The Sun that Roma center back Mehdi Benatia is an alternative to Eliaquim Mangala should Mangala's recent talk of staying put have legs.
Benatia had an exceptional season in his first season with Roma after his €13.5million move from Udinese. City would likely have to pay top dollar as the player only last year signed a five year deal which gives Roma a great deal of leverage if someone wants Benatia. With Joleon Lescott out of contract, Matija Nastasic having had a rough second season in Manchester, and Martin Demichelis older than dirt City finding someone to partner Vincent Kompany will be at the top of the priority list.

Manchester City defender Matija Nastasic is likely to miss the next three weeks with a calf injury.

Vincent Kompany is fit again after a thigh problem but will not be ready to play against Swansea, so this news about Nastasic means Martin Demichelis is certain to start alongside either Joleon Lescott or Javi Garcia. David Silva also remains on the sidelines while Joe Hart is set to be back on the bench after his Champions League outing.

Manchester City defender Matija Nastasic will miss the first six weeks of the season with an ankle injury picked up in pre-season.

This is a big blow for Nastasic and his new manager Manuel Pellegrini, who has limited options in central defence. Joleon Lescott may get a rare chance to start some games in his absence, although the injury could push City to renew their interest in Real Madrid's Pepe.

Manchester City are waiting to discover the extent of defender Matija Nastasic's ankle injury suffered during Saturday's Asia Trophy final win over Sunderland.

Nastasic was carried from the pitch on a stretcher and in agony but there is no reports of how serious the injury may be. If there's a chance he could miss the start of the season then Joleon Lescott may get a rare chance to start some games, although a serious injury could see City renew their interest in Real Madrid's Pepe.
