The Italian champions want Kolarov.
Serie A champions Juventus are aiming to make their second summer purchase from Manchester City by submitting a €12m offer for full-back Aleksandar Kolarov, according to Football Italia.
The Italian club have been showing interest in Kolarov for some time and having already brought Carlos Tevez to Turin, now want to make it a City double.
Inter Milan are also interested in the Serbia international, but after a poor season the 2010 league champions cannot offer Champions League football like Juve can.
Although recognised as a left-back, Kolarov’s eagerness to get forward makes the 27-year-old more of a wing-back or even a midfielder and in a system at La Bianconeri that involves playing three centre-backs, it’s thought the Citizens player would fit right in.
The Serb also knows Italian football well having spent three years with former side Lazio, before City tempted Kolarov to England in 2010 following a £20m deal being agreed.
The 2012 English champions are set to lose half of that amount in this proposal from Juve, but with wealthy owner Sheikh Mansour at the helm in Eastlands this shouldn’t prove to be an issue.
Kolarov has spent three years at the Etihad Stadium and in that time has played 94 matches in all competitions and won both the FA Cup and Premier League title.
However, with Gael Clichy considered as the first choice left-back at the club, the defender’s opportunities have been few and far between and the full-back is more likely to get regular playing time with the Old Lady.
