Manchester City Completed Aleksandar Kolarov Signing

Serbian left back Aleksandar Kolarov has become the latest signing of Manchester City. City has spent £18.9 million to land Kolarov from Lazio. The deal was finalized upon the completion of the medical. He has also been granted work permit and it is expected that he would join the City squad after their America tour.

Aleksandar Kolarov also attracted Real Madrid interest. Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho considered Kolarov as the second option if he failed to bring in Chelsea left back Ashley Cole. Now that, Kolarov has completed his move to City, Mourinho would become desperate to land Cole.

Aleksandar Kolarov is a highly rated full back who has excellent attacking intent and most importantly his versatility is also a welcome addition for any side. Though he is a specialist left back, Kolarov is also comfortable in the midfield. The 24-year-old spent 3 seasons at Lazio and played 82 league matches. He is also very good at shooting.

Now, the arrival of Aleksandar Kolarov means Wayne Bridge’s first team appearance would be significantly reduced and Liverpool has reportedly shown their interest to add Bridge to their squad which currently lacks a quality left back.

With the Kolarov signing, Manchester City has already spent around £80 million so far in the summer transfer window. However, reports suggest that manager Roberto Mancini has not yet completed his summer signings and is currently on the lookout for a midfielder and a striker.
