Edin Dzeko: Manchester City is the Next Destination?

Wolfsburg striker Edin Dzeko has recently asked his club to lower their asking price of £50 million and revealed his ambition of playing for a big club. The Bosnian has been one of the prime summer targets of Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini.

Italian club Juventus is also in the race. Even ‘Old Lady of Turin’ is also interested to offer Brazilian Diego or Mohammed Sissoko in a part-swap part-cash deal for Edin Dzeko.

Manchester City is also reportedly ready to involve their under-performed Paraguayan striker Roque Santa Cruz in a part-exchange part-cash deal to secure the service of Edin Dzeko.

Edin Dzeko was the highest scorer of Bundesliga last season scoring 22 goals. The 24-year-old has scored 56 goals in 94 league appearances for Wolfsburg since joining the club from Teplice in 2007. Over the last 3 years, he has grown into a world class striker and it is pretty much natural that he now wants to play for a big club.

City manager Mancini is also tracking Inter Milan’s 19-year-old striker Mario Balotelli in his attempt to play both Dzeko and Balotelli together up front next season. Manchester City last season signed three star strikers including Carlos Tevez, Emmanuel Adebayor and Santa Cruz by spending more than £60 million.

Though Edin Dzeko has already made himself clear by revealing his interest to move away from Wolfsburg this summer, his German club would like to make some quick cash in using his current demand in the market.

Overall, it seems Manchester City would be the striker’s next destination, considering the Premier League outfit’s high spending ability.
