Manchester City are now open to a swap deal involving Aleksander Kolarov joining Juventus, as they eye Barcelona full-back Maxwell as a replacement.

The defender is now looking for a move away from City, with Juventus ready to match a reported £8 million fee.

As a replacement, Barcelona defender Maxwell has been mentioned as a potential target.
