Manchester City will demand £6 million for full back Aleksandar Kolarov, with Turkish club Galatasaray thought to be front-runners for the defenders signature, Goal.com reports.

The Sky Blues are thought to be keen to offload the full-back but will stand firm on their valuation having paid around £16 million for Kolarov in 2010.

The defender struggled to get into Roberto Mancini’s first team last season and new manager Manuel Pellegrini appears happy to let the player go due to the defenders high wages.

Kolarov earns £90,000 a week at Manchester City and Pellegrini would like to get that off of the clubs wage bill if it is possible.

The defender also appears to be keen on a move away from the Etihad as it means he would get more of a chance to play first team football.

Juventus were thought to be front-runners in the race to sign Kolarov but have been leap frogged by Galatasaray, who appear to be ready to meet City’s valuation of the defender.

The Italian Champions are still interested in the defender but will have to move quickly before Galatasaray manage to agree a deal with City.
