Sabatini continues to push for City’s Kolarov

Walter Sabatini is looking for reinforcement for Roma’s Champions League journey and he’s starting with a familiar name: Aleksander Kolarov.

Sabatini, while sporting director of Roma’s city rivals Lazio, brought Kolarov to Italy in 2007 from OFK Beograd for €925,000. The Serbian, who is out of contract with Manchester City in 2015, has split time at the left-back position throughout his tenure at the Etihad with Gael Clichy.

Walter Sabatini is prepared to pay €5m for the services of the Serbian, who is likely ready to move on from England and return to Italy.
