City exit Dzeko's only option

Next Story

It looks like the best option for striker Edin Dzeko is to leave Manchester City as their offensive options are piling up.

Clubs such as Bayern Munich, Juventus, and Borussia Dortmund, have expressed an interest in the £27million man, who hasn't scored in any competition since February.

The Bosnian has fallen down the pecking order at City, and currently finds himself fourth choice striker under Roberto Mancini, due to a combination of bad-form and injury.

And, with more attacking reinforcements expected to be arriving at the Etihad Stadium this summer, Dzeko could be sidelined, and his abilities wasted.

Dzeko first arrived in England from Wolfsburg in January 2011, and now has options from a number of other German clubs , who are willing to pay for his return ticket - a move that his international manager advises him to take.

"Dzeko's situation at Manchester City cannot last forever. He knows what is best for him," Safet Susic told the Daily Mirror.

If the Citizens manage to keep their calm and beat QPR on the final day this weekend, they will be crowned Premier League champions - an outcome which makes Mancini's expected stay a bigger possibility.

"It seems that Manchester City will win the title, which means Roberto Mancini and his staff will remain and I saw that City are planning to bring even more attacking players," added Susic.

Italian champions Juventus are another club that have expressed interest in Dzeko. According to his agent though, Silvano Martina, it is hard to find a club in Serie A that could afford City's possible asking price.

"Dzeko is a champion, although this season he has not done so well. The City striker costs too much, so no Italian club will deal with the English club to buy him now."
