Three Lions star joined the club from Aston Villa for £20m in 2010.
Unsettled Manchester City midfielder James Milner wants to quit the Premier League champions this summer in the search for a club that will offer him more regular first-team football next season, according to reports in the Metro.
The England international may have featured in a total of 35 matches in all competitions in the previous campaign for the mega-rich Premier League outfit, 26 of which came in the top flight.
However, many of those appearances came from the substitutes bench and now it is understood that the player has grown tired of life under new City head coach Manuel Pellegrini and so intends to leave the north-west giants after the conclusion to this summer’s Fifa World Cup finals in Brazil.
And already the likes of both Tottenham Hotspur and Everton are believed to be preparing big-money bids for the 28-year-old for when the summer transfer window reopens for business.
City, though, could very well be willing to listen to offers for Milner with the club keen to get as many high earners off their wage bill for next season.
