Manchester City full-back first choice for Juventus

Aleksandar Kolarov - Manchester CityAfter assessing potential suitors for the left wing-back position Juventus coach Antonio Conte seems to have decided on Manchester City’s Aleksandar Kolarov as his preferred option.

Originally the Bianconeri had also been considering Napoli’s Juan Zuniga but will now work specifically at acquiring the Serbian.

With the recent signing of Carlos Tevez from Manchester City already opening lines of communication between the two clubs Tuttosport are reporting that the Turin club are hoping to utilize these relations to secure the 27-year-olds signature.

However, one apparent problem the Old Lady face is speeding up the departure of current defender Paolo De Ceglie who is currently earning around €500,000 a season.

Sampdoria have shown an interest in the full-back and seem willing to match his salary but until a deal can be negotiated Juventus could struggle to finance any deal for Kolarov.
