Man City veteran poised to make Turkey switch

Manchester City could be on the verge of letting one of their defensive stalwarts go this summer if Aleksandar Kolarov can’t resist the temptation of a big move to Turkey.

According to Turkish outlet Milliyet via Transfer Tavern, Turkish Super Lig giants Besiktas are ready to make a move for the 30-year-old defender. Per the source, Besiktas will consider reworking Kolarov’s £5 million-a-year salary but are confident of their ability to secure a deal for him.

Kolarov has spent his last six seasons at Man City since moving from Lazio in 2010. In 136 league appearances for the Citizens, Kolarov has 10 goals. He has made a grand total of 200 appearances and 20 goals in all competitions for the team.

The Serbian defender was named Serbian Player of the Year in 2011 after a successful Premier League debut with the Citizens that included FA Cup honours.
