Manchester City are struggling to offload some of their deadwood this summer, according to The Telegraph.

The report claims that City are having a hard time of finding buyers for Samir Nasri and Eliaquim Mangala.

The Telegraph say that City’s valuation, and their wages, is too high for any potential suitors.

Nasri is valued at £10-15m, whilst City want at least £15m for Mangala. This. as well as their high wage bill, has restricted the number of clubs willing to sign the pair.

It is claimed that Nasri is on £185k-per-week, which has put off any interested parties. A loan move could become another option as the window progresses.

There is some good news for Pep Guardiola, though, as the club are set to reach an agreement with Swansea over the sale of Wilfried Bony.

Swansea’s last offer of £10m was £3m off City’s valuation, but the report claims that the two clubs are close to reaching a deal.
