Kolarov is just one of Roberto Mancini's summer signings as the Eastlands outfit hope that another busy transfer window will help them for Premier League glory.

The Serbia international left-back is relishing the opportunity to test himself in England's top flight after his reported £19million switch from Lazio.

And he feels that the challenge of overtaking Sir Alex Ferguson's trophy-laden Red Devils is the ideal motivation.


Kolarov said: "City is a club that is going places. I hope that City will become better than United and will become better known than United are now.

"The Premier League is probably more aggressive than Serie A but I am ready for the challenge.

"I had opportunities to go to other clubs but I decided to come here because I could see that it is a club that is growing. I'm happy to be here.

"The squad is very strong and over the next few years we want to win the league and the Champions League and that is the focus. I will give 100 per cent to try to win the fans over."
