Galatasaray have been told by Manchester City that they must pay £6million for Aleksandar Kolarov and match his £90,000-a-week wages.
City will not budge on their valuation of the Serbian left-back, who has two years left on his contract at the Etihad Stadium, as they look to recoup as much of the £16m they paid Lazio for him back in 2010.
The 27-year-old defender struggled for game time under previous City boss Roberto Mancini while Manuel Pellegrini is understood to be keen to offload Kolarov and bring in a cheaper signing from Spain.
Galatasaray might struggle to cover the entire package of wages and fee - particularly after they spent big in January to sign Wesley Sneijder and Didier Drogba.
Juventus are also understood to be still interested, although they seem content to wait for City to reduce their asking price.
Kolarov has previously gone on record in saying he would have to consider his future if he remained on the fringes of the first-team squad at the Etihad Stadium.
