Manchester City defender Aleksandar Kolarov has dismissed speculation that he is to be leaving the club this summer.

Fiorentina are the latest club to be linked with a move for the Serbian international, who moved to Eastlands from Lazio in the summer of 2010 for £16 million.

Inter Milan and Juventus are also believed to be keen on bringing the player back to Serie 'A', but the full back insists he's more than happy working under Roberto Mancini.

"Journalists must be struggling for news. I have not been contacted by any Italian club and when this happens it will not affect me. I want to stay at Manchester City," said Kolarov.


It's the second time the 25-year-old has been forced into pledging his allegiance to the Citizens' cause, with Kolarov stating at the end of May that he hopes to improve on a solid season at the club next term.

“I have been playing for Manchester City for just one year and this season I adapted to English football. I’m sure next season I will be able to perform even better.”
