City open talks with in-demand striker

Published Add your comment

Manchester City have opened talks with Wolfsburg striker Edin Dzeko, according to Sky Sports News.

City swooped after news of Dzeko’s release clause was revealed by the German club’s manager Steve McClaren.

The clause is set at €40 million (£34 million) but expires on Monday and Roberto Mancini now has a head start on his rivals.

The signing of Dzeko would be something of a coup for the Eastlands club, with Manchester United, Real Madrid and AC Milan all thought to be monitoring his situation.

Carlos Tevez impressed last season but Mancini’s attack failed to fire the team into the Champions League places.

Dzeko’s record in the Bundesliga of 54 goals in 94 games speaks for itself and would provide City with yet another proven goalscorer.

The Bosnian’s signing is likely to see Roque Santa Cruz, Robinho and Craig Bellamy’s departures hastened and City have also been linked with Real’s Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuain.
