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."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
