Akşam: Beşiktaş close to signing Manchester City left-back

After half a decade at Manchester City, left-back Aleksander Kolarov could be set for a new adventure in Istanbul with Turkish champions Beşiktaş.

According to various Turkish media outlets, including Akşam and Hürriyet, Kolarov has agreed personal terms with Beşiktaş, who will play Champions League football next season and are looking to bolster their squad.

Kolarov is reported to have agreed to a three-year deal with the possibility of a fourth year, and will earn €2.1 million (£1.76 million) per season at Beşiktaş.

There is no mention of an agreement between the two clubs yet, but Pep Guardiola is said to have ‘no objection’ to this transfer. This would suggest that the new City boss has a replacement in mind for the left-back position if he’s given his consent for Kolarov to leave.

Turkish reports claim that Beşiktaş will announce an agreement with 30-year-old Kolarov at an upcoming club event.
