Galatasaray and Juventus are battling for Manchester City fullback Aleksandar Kolarov.

The Daily Star Sunday says the Serb defender, 27, is wanted by Juventus, who offered £1.5m as a loan fee to borrow City's £100k-a-week man for the coming season.

But the Blues have told Turkish giants Galatasaray and the Italian champions that they want £6m for Kolarov, though a compromise figure of around £5m could clinch a deal for the dead-ball specialist, who is second to Gael Clichy at the Etihad.
