The Serbian defender starred for his country at this summer’s World Cup and has attracted the attentions of Real Madrid, Juventus and Inter Milan but it is the blues who have reached an agreement with the Italian side.
If Kolarov completes a move to Eastlands, then it will be Bridge, who was signed by former boss Mark Hughes in January 2009, who is most likely to make way for the Serbian. The former England man hasn’t done much to impress Roberto Mancini and hit the headlines earlier this year with the much publicised fall-out with John Terry.
Kolarov will be Mancini’s sixth signing since taking over as Eastlands boss and will follow fellow World Cup stars Jerome Boateng, Yaya Toure and David Silva to Eastlands this summer, taking City’s spending to almost £80m.
That figure could be increased further if the blues manage to persuade Aston Villa to accept their bid for James Milner and strike an agreement with the much sought after Edin Dzeko from Wolfsburg.
What do you think? Is Kolarov right for City? And who was the one person who said he would be our next signing on the poll?
