Radio Radio: City offer €20m plus Kolarov for Benatia

Rome-based radio station Radio Radio is reporting that Roma and Manchester City are closing in on a swap deal.

Radio Radio is reporting that the English club is prepared to pay €20m plus Aleksander Kolarov in exchange for Mehdi Benatia, who will receive a salary of €3.5m per season. Roma, who are reluctant to sell the Moroccan, have become even more interested in pursuing this deal because the Manchester-based club are willing to throw in Kolarov, who is looking for a move away from England and has Serie A experience with city rivals Lazio.
