Italian trio 'lead chase for Kolarov'
AC Milan, Internazionale and Juventus lead a host of clubs who want to sign Aleksandar Kolarov, the Manchester City left-back's agent has said.
However, the Premier League title contenders have not yet received any offers for the Serbia international, Dejan Joksimovic added.
Former Lazio player Kolarov is also interesting Monaco and Russian clubs, but Serie A high-flyers Roma have decided they cannot afford his wages.
"There are teams that are following him like AC Milan, Juventus, Inter, Monaco and also a few Russian teams are now also willing to pay his wages," Joksimovic told AS Roma Radio.
"So for now we do not know anything, and there is nothing concrete. I can tell you that Roma are following him, but there are problems.
"Firstly, he has a contract for 3.5 million euros for another year with Manchester City, so it would be difficult because Roma cannot pay these figures."
Kolarov, who joined City in 2010 from Lazio, said recently he had had the chance to leave the Etihad Stadium last summer -- but was glad he had chosen to stay.
The 28-year-old had been second-choice left-back behind Gael Clichy last season but has featured more frequently since Manuel Pellegrini replaced Roberto Mancini as manager. He has made 41 appearances in this campaign.
