Manchester City defender Aleksandar Kolarov admits that he has been in contact with Juventus, and could follow Carlos Tevez to the Serie 'A' club this summer.

Sky Sports reports how the 27-year-old left-back has been heavily linked with a move away from the Etihad Stadium, as he continues his search for more regular first-team football.

The sacking of Roberto Mancini and arrival of Manuel Pellegrini has raised further doubts over the Serbia international's long-term future in the Premier League, though Kolarov is expected to report for pre-season training with Manchester City next week.

Having attracted interest from a number of clubs around Europe, Kolarov says that he would be willing to take a pay cut in order to guarantee himself regular action, and would be open to a move to Italy to link up with former team-mate Tevez in Antonio Conte's side.

"I am constantly in contact with the club (Juventus), and we will soon see what will happen," he told Serbian Sports Arena. "I'm happy in Manchester, but I want to play regularly.

"Money is not everything, I would be available to cut my salary. Simply, I want to be in the regular eleven."

Kolarov signed for Manchester City from Lazio in a £16million deal in 2010, but could return to Serie 'A' having enjoyed three seasons at Stadio Olimpico prior to his move to England.
