EXCLUSIVE – Kolarov a new deal

City are poised to hand Kolarov a surprise lifeline and offer him a new deal to stay at the Etihad.

The Serbian left-back, 28, appeared to be heading for the exit and has 12 months remaining on his current £90,000 a week deal going into this summer.

A number of clubs, including Mancini’s Galatasaray, are keen to do business at a reduced £8m. Italian giants Roma and Inter Milan have also expressed an interest.

City, however, want to sit down with Kolarov before the season is out and discuss a potential new two-year extension.

Kolarov has managed to force his way in ahead of Gael Clichy on a number of occasions this term and is certainly enjoying his best spell at the club.

Pellegrini has clearly had a positive impact on AK, who has been outstanding in recent weeks.

A new deal would be on reduced terms, but with lucrative bonuses inserted.

If Pellegrini thinks he is now worth it, who are we to argue?

  1. Pellegrini ‘The Engineer’ as we all call him has made so many key decisions this year including bringing in Negredo who a lot of people questioned over Soldado and the likes but look at him now being claimed as ‘Signing Of The Season’ such a great tactical manager possible one of the very best!
    A lot of players have relished underneath Pellegrini due to the new style of management which they didn’t see under Mancini.
    Kolarov for me has been one of those players who everyone is always on the back of but the left foot he has is something special great going forward and constantly learning about defending, which isn’t his strong suit, don’t forget Clichy use to be world class at Arsenal and can still put in a great shift these days and without a doubt teaching Kolarov about the position.
    It does beg the idea whether there is a need to make a search for a LB in the near future at least the end of this season and next.
    That’s just my opinion though.

  2. It’s strange how many players improve their performance as they get near to contract renewal?
    …or is it MP’s influence?

    • I would say MP’s influence, because he has a history of getting the most out of his players and making a team greater than the sum of its parts.
