Man City full-back Alexsander Kolarov plots a return to Serie A as his agent opens talks with Serie A giants Inter Milan. And he could be joined by team-mate Stevan Jovetic.
Kolarov joined City for £16 million in 2010 and has made no secret of his desire to return to Italy one day, despite signing a three year extension to his contract – worth a reported £100k a week - just last summer. In March he was quoted as saying: ‘I’d like to return to Italy, but it’s difficult.’ His first team appearances were limited last season by the presence of Gael Clichy. The Serbian started just 16 matches (to Clichy’s 23) but out-performed the former Arsenal man in clean sheets (9 v 6), Goals (2 v 0) and matched his three assists. AC Milan were thought to be leading the race for his signature, but Inter have stolen a march and are also keen to take his City team mate Stevan Jovetic and Chelsea’s Juan Cuadrado. Which might just leave a Raheem Sterling sized hole for one of last season’s top two. Just saying… Jun 10 - 2:50 AM

Aleksandar Kolarov has been on fire since returning to the starting line-up with outputs of 16, 24, and 29 over the past three weeks.

Kolarov has always been a better fantasy player than real life player with the only drawback being that he doesn't start frequently enough to be a true fantasy stud. For those disappointed to regularly see Gael Clichy lining up for City when healthy, here's a reminder of why you're so bummed about that: six passes intercepted, three blocked shots, two shots on target, a clean sheet, four successful crosses, three corners won, and two tackles won. He got 29 points in the Yahoo system DESPITE a yellow card and not registering either a goal or an assist. That's a fantasy stud. If only he was a regular starter.

Aleksandar Kolarov is likely to join Yaya Toure and James Milner on the sidelines for City's Week 30 clash with West Brom.

Manchester City need all three points from their match with West Brom on Saturday to maintain their firm hold on a Champions League place. With the season going in the wrong direction following a week where they lost to Burnley and were eliminated from the Champions League, City are desperate to beat the Baggies. That task will be a little tougher on the attacking end as City are likely to be missing Kolarov and will definitely be missing Yaya Toure and James Milner. The absences mean that Samir Nasri, Jesus Navas and Gael Clichy are almost certain starters.

Manuel Pellegrini confirmed in Tuesdays’ pre-match UEFA Champions League press conference that Manchester City will be without Aleksandar Kolarov for up to a month because of injury.

The full-back limped out of the warm-up prior to Sundays’ derby win against Manchester rivals United and a subsequent assessment has revealed a grade one calf tear. His absence hands French defender Gael Clichy the opportunity to establish himself within the starting eleven having been rotated throughout the season. Eliaquim Mangala [hip] has been passed for visit of CSKA Moscow but midfielder Frank Lampard [thigh] did not train ahead of the match although the on-loan New York City star has a chance of facing Queen Park Rangers in game week 11.

Manchester City stepped up their preparations for their Premier League title defence with a 4-1 victory over MLS champions Sporting Kansas City on Thursday.

After a shaky start to pre-season Manchester City have got things going, with back to back victories in Scotland and the US. The goals in this 4-1 win came from Bruno Zuculini, Dedryck Boyata, Kelechi Iheanacho and pre-season penalty taker Aleksandar Kolarov, who has taken on the duty in the absence of Yaya Toure and Sergio Aguero. New signing Willy Caballero featured in goal, while Micah Richards got a rare run-out in the second half.

Inter Milan are keen on landing Manchester City's Aleksandar Kolarov in January, but they're not alone. Juventus, Napoli and Zenit St Petersburg are also reportedly in the running.

Kolarov has expressed his desire to move back to Italy in a recent interview, citing limited first-team reps as the main reason. "I would love to return to the Italian league one day. 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." With F Sergio Aguero and D Pablo Zabaleta each expected to miss time after sustaining leg-related injuries earlier this week, Mancini could be reluctant to sell. Kolarov was benched in favor Gael Clichy in City's 6-3 victory over Arsenal last weekend, which marks the third time in the past seven games he's been watching from the sidelines. Despite inconsistent playing time, Kolarov has tallied three assists in his last two starts.

Manchester City defender Aleksandar Kolarov has pledged his commitment to the club after being linked with a move away from the Etihad.

Kolarov was unsettled last season and was linked to a move away throughout the summer but has already played 90 minutes of league football for Manuel Pellegrini (vs Hull). It is likely the Serbian international will remain Gael Clichy's back-up at left-back but the promise of more pitch time appears to have persuaded him that his future remains at City. When there is solid news of him starting he remains a fantastic option for your fantasy team due to his set piece delivery.

Inter Milan are considering a move for Manchester City left-back Aleksandar Kolarov.

Kolarov cost Manchester City over £16million back in 2010 but he has never really settled and lost his place to Gael Clichy last season. Despite his excellent set-piece delivery Kolarov has looked slightly out of his depth with the pace of the Premier League and may find Italy a better fit.
