Edin Dzeko focused on Manchester City title charge

Published Add your comment

Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko has poured cold water on suggestions he could be about to exit the defending Premier League champions this summer. The Bosnian only signed a new four year contract recently and has no plans on leaving.

Dzeko focused

"I have just extended my contract with City and that should be a clear message to all the talk about me leaving Manchester," Dzeko told the Anadolu Agency, as relayed by Goal.

"I don't want to comment on rumours. I am happy at City and focused on the club and their great fans."

Competition for places

Dzeko has not been in the best of form so far this season and has only managed nine starts in the Premier League. The arrival of winter transfer window acquisition Wilfried Bony could very well limited his playing time even further.

His goal scoring touch of last season seems to have deserted the former Wolfsburg man, with only six goals all season: "Maybe I could have scored more often but I can't complain. I am happy because 50 goals in the Premier League is a great achievement. Our goal is to win titles and try and catch Chelsea."

City's title charge

The Citizens lie five points off league leaders, with the London club also having a game in hand and, whilst the focus is on catching Chelsea, City also hope to overturn their first leg defeat to Barcelona in the Champions League when they play the Catalan club next week at the Nou Camp.

"The first leg was very important for us and we tried not to lose at home but we were not good, especially in the first half," the 28-year-old continued.

"Who knows how it might have been if we didn't get a red card?

"Now we want to surprise Barcelona. We want to play better than we did at the Etihad Stadium and we will see if that is enough [to progress]."
