Cape Town -The futures of two Manchester City defenders look set to be decided before the close of the summer transfer window.  

The Manchester Evening News report that Matija Nastasic and Micah Richards look set to depart the Etihad.

City want £12 million for Nastasic while Richards could leave for as little as half that amount.

Richards has just one year left on his deal with the current champions of England and will be allowed to leave after failing to fit into Manuel Pellegrini's game plann.

Newcastle and West Ham are reportedly leading the race for the English defender's signature.

Nastasic appears set for a move to Italy with Juventus and Roma battling to sign the defender.

Napoli are interested but with financial constraints limiting them, the Naples club look set to miss out on the defender. 

Nastasic, is still just 21-years-old, and has made over 50 appearances for Manchester City in his two seasons with the club.

The 2014/15 season is Richards' tenth season with the club but he looks set to depart this summer.
