Juventus are ready to try again for Manchester City fullback Aleksandar Kolarov.

The Daily Mail says the 28-year-old is a popular figure at the Etihad but is interested in a return to Serie A where he has other suitors such as Roma and Inter Milan.

His wages of £2.9m a year are a sticking point but Italian champions Juventus are prepared to offer a longer deal on around £2.5m a year.

On Wednesday, Juve officials met Kolarov's representatives at the Westin Palace Hotel in Milan and they are due to hold further talks after the weekend before making a proposal to City.
