Inter set to land Manchester City Left Back

Manchester City will reportedly snub Juventus' bid to take Aleksandar Kolarov on loan next season in order to sell him to Inter Milan.The 26-year-old Serbia international left-back confirmed earlier this week that he will hold future talks with his agent having become frustrated with life at the Etihad Stadium, where he dropped behind Gael Clichy in the pecking order last season following his arrival from Arsenal 12 months ago.And Kolarov, who has made 36 appearances for City - only 12 last season - since his arrival from Lazio in 2010 for £17million, has been linked with a move back to Italy's Serie A this summer.Inter Milan have already been linked with a swoop to take the player, who City would reportedly want £9million fort his signature, while Juventus have now been linked with a possible season-long loan offer.But, with City boss Roberto Mancini looking to reduce his wage bill and bring in some funds following a massive outlay on new signings in the past two years, it is thought they will snub Juve and hold out for a bid from Inter or any other interested party during the transfer window.If no firm bids come in it will not be a problem for Mancini as he sees Kolarov as the ideal back-up to Clichy, but the player is unlikely to settle for another season of kicking his heels on the bench.
