Sky Italia: City make new Roma offer

Sky Italia journalist Mario Giunta has reported that Manchester City have submitted a new bid for Roma’s Mehdi Benatia.

Reportedly, City have offered €35m for Benatia, which has been promptly rejected by Roma. The Giallorossi, however, are asking for €30m plus 21 year old Matija Nastasić. Roma are not willing to negotiate any price for the player: it’s either €40m or cash and players of equal valuation.
