Juventus keen on on a double deal to bring Carlos Tevez and Aleksandar Kolarov to Italy.
Reigning Serie A champions Juventus are looking to bolster their squad by bringing in Manchester City duo Carlos Tevez and Aleksandar Kolarov.
Sports newspaper Tuttosport are reporting that Juve are to bid €11 million (£9.4miilion) to take Carlos Tevez to Italy, while the club are prepared to spend €2 million (£1.7million) to secure defender Kolarov on a season-long loan.
AC Milan had been favourites to sign Tevez, who is about to enter the last year of his contract at the Etihad, although their president yesterday told Sky Sports Italia: “If we do not sell one of our players, then we cannot make any other moves.”
The Argentine striker hasn’t yet been offered a new deal at City, with Monaco, PSG and Boca Juniors all linked with the 29-year-old.
Kolarov has struggled to gain a regular place in the starting eleven over the past two seasons, with Gael Clichy cementing his place as the first choice left-back. A return to Serie A, where the Serbian spent three seasons with Lazio, would suit the defender as his family still live in Italy.
Reports in Italy had suggested that Juve had already put a €10 million (£8.6miilion) bid in to take the full-back permanently, although it is uncertain whether a loan or permanent move would suit City more.
