Manchester City defender Aleksandar Kolarov's agent has begun considering a move back to Serie A for the Serbian international by holding a meeting for Juventus chiefs earlier today, according to Sky Italia journalist Gianluca Di Marzio.
Kolarov has just over 12 months left on his current deal at City and with no talks over fresh terms currently scheduled the full-back's representative Sergio Berti took up the chance to have lunch with Juve directors at a hotel in Turin this afternoon.
The 28-year-old has started more Premier League games than left-back rival Gael Clichy at the Etihad this season, 20 in total, but is clearly unconvinced that his long-term future belongs with Manuel Pellegrini's men.
Juve are long-term admirers of the technically-gifted star dating back to his previous spell in Serie A with Lazio and are currently considering a summer swoop, with Di Marzio reporting that Berti plans to hold similar talks with other Serie A sides later this week to evaluate the likelihood of a move back to Rome when his deal expires.
City are set to review contract extensions across the board under lingering threat of heavy UEFA sanctions in regard to fresh Financial Fair Play regulations, which could help seal Kolarov's fate in terms of a move across the continent.
Juve would have to offer the Serb a lucrative salary package not in keeping with their current policy to force a deal through, but the Old Lady desperate for proven Champions League stars to make a mark in the competition next season a summer switch remains a distinct possibility.
