The left back has been linked with a move to Italian Champions, Juventus.
Manchester City left back Aleksandar Kolarov has said that he wants to stay with the Sky Blues and prove his worth to the clubs new manager, Manuel Pellegrini, Sky Sports reports.
The full-back has been linked with a move away from the Etihad this summer, with Juventus and Galatasaray interested in signing the defender.
Kolarov struggled to hold down a regular place in City’s line-up last season, being second choice to Gail Clichy on many occasions.
However, Kolarov has moved to quell the speculation surrounding his future by stating that he wants to remain with the Premier League runners-up.
“I’m well at City and I hope to convince Pellegrini of my qualities and to play as much as possible next season,” Kolarov told Tuttosport.
“The interest of important and prestigious clubs like Juventus pleases me, but I won’t decide alone about my future.”
Despite stating that he is happy at the Etihad at the moment, he didn’t rule out a move away from Manchester in the future, with the idea of playing in Italy being particularly appealing to him.
“If something will happen, this will first be decided between two clubs,” he added.
“I can say that I was fine in Italy and that I like Italian football.”
City may still consider selling Kolarov if they receive a high enough bid, with the club looking to trim their wage bill for the forthcoming season.
