Manchester City defender Aleksandar Kolarov could follow Carlos Tevez to Juventus, according to talkSPORT.

The defender signed for Manchester City for £16m in the summer of 2010, but has struggled to hold down a regular first-team berth in the side. 

Kolarov was restricted to only 18 league appearances last season because of the form of Gael Clichy, who was widely preferred by former manager Roberto Mancini. 

Carlos Tevez's proposed move to Juventus looks set to be completed in the coming days, and the Serbian could be set to follow him, with Juventus looking to offer the left-back a way out of the Etihad. 

Fellow Serie A side Inter Milan appeared to be the front-runners in the race to sign Kolarov earlier this month, but Juventus' signing of Carlos Tevez could mean that they could move for the Serbian. 

Juventus manager Antonio Conte believes that a bid of around £9m could be a sufficient figure that could tempt Kolarov away from Manchester City. But the Serbian left-back will want to be guarenteed first team football, after a disappointing spell with Manchester City. 

But the arrival of new manager Manuel Pellegrini could mean that Kolarov may stay at the Etihad, if he can resolve his differences with the club.

Pellegrini will look to use different players to Mancini when he begins his reign next month and if the pair can agree that first-team football can be confirmed, Kolarov may seek to fight for a place in the Manchester City side.
