Manchester City will listen to offers for Eliaquim Mangala and Wilfried Bony as well as Samir Nasri, according to Sky sources.

All three have been left out of Manchester City's squad for the forthcoming Champions League qualifiers.

Sky sources understand that while City - who signed John Stones from Everton for £47.5m on Tuesday - are not planning a fire sale of players, they will listen for offers for the trio.

Sky Sports News HQ revealed on Monday that Nasri was for sale, with City demanding a minimum of £17m for the France midfielder.

Italian clubs AC Milan, Inter Milan and Roma are interested in signing him, but City will also now allow striker Bony and centre-back Mangala leave - if the price is right.  

Guardiola has revealed midfielder Nasri had returned to pre-season training overweight and has ordered him to shed the pounds having left him out of a July friendly with Borussia Dortmund.

City signed Frenchman Mangala from Porto in a £32m deal in August 2014, but he has struggled to become a first-team regular at the Etihad.
