Aleksandar Kolarov is set for crunch talks with Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini.
The Daily Star says the Serbia international is concerned about his lack of regular starts under Mancini and wants to know if he is still part of his future plans.
Italian giants AC Milan and Inter Milan are both waiting in the wings to pounce and offer Kolarov an escape route, while Juventus are also keen on the defender.
He will tell Mancini he is not prepared to be used in just Capital One Cup and FA Cup games and that he wants a bigger role.
But if Mancini is unable to give him assurances, Kolarov will look to secure a move elsewhere before the start of the season.
