Milner has been a bit-part player under Manuel Pellegrini and has lost his place in the England squad because of that.
City are only going to strengthen their side further in the summer and so Milner could continue to slip down the pecking order.
However the 28 year old is not worried about that as the success of the side is so much that he can play a bit-part role and still be involved in celebrations.
“I want to play every game but I know that’s not possible at Manchester City,” Milner told the Sunday Mirror.
“I love being here, even though there is great competition for places, and I would love to stay.
“I’d love to stay at the club, but that’s a decision for the club to make and me as well.”
Milner has less than 18 months left on his current deal so will be hoping for discussions over an extension to begin shortly.
