Juventus and Inter Milan are set to chase Aleksandar Kolarov in January after the full-back admitted he wanted to head back to Serie A in the future, according to the Daily Mirror.
Kolarov has been rotated in and out of the Manchester City team this season and could return to Italy, where he began his career.
The Serbian was signed from Lazio in 2010 for £19 million but had to fight for his place in the team with Gael Clichy after joining.
The defender, who scored a superb free-kick against Leicester City in Tuesday’s League Cup tie, may be tempted to the Italian giants in search of regular first-team football.
Kolarov has made 18 appearances for City in all competitions this season and had a strong start, scoring two goals and creating three.
The 28-year-old is unlikely to leave in the winter transfer window as City progressed to the last 16 in the Champions League whilst Juventus were knocked out in the group stage and Inter failed to qualify altogether.
His national side Serbia missed out on qualification for the World Cup, so a desire to impress ahead of the summer is not essential for the left-back.
Russian side Zenit St Petersburg are reported to be also interested in Kolarov and will enquire in January.
