The Serbian has been linked with a move away from the Etihad this summer, after struggling to hold down a first-team spot in the three seasons since his big-money move from Lazio.

However, Kolarov isn't planning to seek a move elsewhere, and remains happy in Manchester.

"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."

The 27-year-old did refuse to rule out a move in the future, with Italy especially 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."
