Experienced campaigner wants seeking Etihad Stadium exit
Manchester City midfielder James Milner is thinking about leaving Eastlands this summer, with a number of Premier League clubs understood to be lining up to sign the player for next season, according to reports in the Sunday Mirror.
The consistent England international is said to have grown unhappy with life in the north west under new City head coach Manuel Pellegrini and now wants to seek a fresh start and a new challenge in his career elsewhere next season.
In particular, Milner is believed to have been particularly disappointed to have been hooked after an hour of play in City’s penultimate home match of the Premier League season against Aston Villa earlier this month and at only being asked to play the final quarter of an hour in the club’s final league encounter of the campaign against West Ham United at Eastlands last Sunday.
And so now the 28-year-old, who has a contract at City until 2015, will make a final decision about his future after this summer’s World Cup, with the likes of Everton, Arsenal, Tottenham and former team Newcastle all interested in the player.
