Serb has found it hard to win a regular starting berth in the north west in his three years at the club.
Out-of-favour Manchester City defender Aleksandar Kolarov wants to return to Serie A when the winter transfer window reopens for business in the new year after not being handed enough first-team openings at Eastlands so far this season under new Blues head coach Manuel Pellegrini, according to reports in the Sunday Mirror.

The highly rated Serbia international has been in the north west since July 2010, with Kolarov being lured to the English top flight from Serie A outfit Lazio on a five-year deal for a whopping transfer fee of £19 million by the then City manager Roberto Mancini.
However, in the intervening three-year period, Kolarov has made just the 108 appearances in total all competitions for City, scoring 12 goals in the process, including four strikes in his 57 Premier League outings for the mega-rich top-flight club.
But with the Serb having once again been mainly used as a bit-part player at City so far in this campaign, despite Mancini being replaced in the dugout by Pellegrini last summer, Kolarov has now decided that he wants to quit the club and return to Italy next month.
And it is understood that Inter, are the side leading Napoli in the chase for the attacking left back in January.
“I would love to return to the Italian league one day,” Kolarov said. “We will see when the time is right. I didn’t get to play matches when I expected to during Roberto Mancini’s time. I’ve been playing more since Manuel Pellegrini’s arrival. But let’s see what happens.”
