Manchester City full-back not content to be on the bench.
Manchester City left-back Aleksandar Kolarov is not happy with his current role at the club, after falling behind Gael Clichy in the pecking order, and will seek a move back to Italy this summer according to the Daily Mail.
The former Lazio man was highly rated when he was signed for City in 2010, but despite his knack for excellent free-kicks and long range shots with his powerful left foot, the Serbian’s defensive liabilities have been exposed time and time again in the English game.
Reportedly a target for Serie A champions Juventus, the 27-year-old would probably be more suited to the slower pace of the Italian game, and could play in his favoured role as a wing-back in Antonio Conte’s current tactical setup.
However, his wages of £100,000 per week could prove a stumbling block, as few can afford to spend the kind of money that is on offer at the Etihad Stadium.
He may be forced out of the door though, as Roberto Mancini is under pressure to improve his squad for next season, as the Italian looks to wrestle back the Premier League title from rivals Manchester United, who had an easy time of winning it this season.
Kolarov is understood to be one of the first the boss would consider selling, along with Samir Nasri and Edin Dzeko.
