Manchester City versatile player Aleksander Kolarov wants to move back to Italy in the summer, according to Daily Star.
Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini is likely to make several changes in the summer to improve his squad for next season.
City are struggling this season, they are six points away from the league leaders Chelsea who have a game in hand.
Daily Star reported that Kolarov could be the first player to leave in the summer as he is keen to move back to Serie A.
The 29-year-old said: “I’d like to return to Italy, but it’s difficult.”
“Last season I played a lot and I think I proved to people at the club that they can believe in me and the result was that I was offered a new contract and I was happy to sign.”
The Citizens signed him form Lazio for a fee of £16million in 2010 but the player failed to cement his place in the starting eleven. He has been seen on variety of positions apart from his left-back role, he has been used as a left-winger, however, failed to cement that spot too.
Kolarov has started only 10 Premier League games so far this season.
City would now have to find his replacement before he leaves them in the summer.
Meanwhile, City striker Edin Dzeko is also set to leave in the summer after struggling to get time at Etihad Stadium.
