Simon Jones from Mail Online has entered the Football Transfer Tavern today with news that Juventus are looking to make a double swoop on Manchester City.
Jones tells punters that the Italian champions want to sign City’s utility left back Aleksandar Kolarov and unsettled striker Carlos Tevez as they look to strengthen their ranks for the new campaign.
City under new manager Manuel Pellegrini have already spent close to £60 million this summer on Sevilla’s Jesus Navas and Shakhhtar Donetsk’s Fernandinho and with more arrivals expected, they need to dramatically cut their wage bill to meet the UEFA Financial Fair Play rules.
This could see players like Tevez and Kolarov departing in cut-price deals as the club look to cut their loses.
Tevez is being lined up by the Turin-based club in a £9 million swoop while his Citizens team-mate Kolarov, who made 32 appearances last term for the Etihad Stadium club, is also thought to be on their radar. The Bianconeri have been linked with the versatile former Lazio defender in the past but they are thought to confident of sealing the transfer this time.
Should City and Pellegrini do everything to hang onto the duo or is it time to let them leave the club? Rate our rumour below.
