Edin Dzeko is considering quitting Manchester City this summer, according to The Sun.


Dzeko started the 2011/12 campaign well and has found the back of the net 17 times in all competitions so far, but has seen his first-team opportunities diminish as the season progressed.


With Sergio Aguero and Mario Balotelli ahead of him in the pecking order at the Etihad Stadium and Carlos Tevez’s return likely to limit his opportunities even further, the Bosnian forward is looking for a route out of the club according to The Sun.


The paper reports that a possible destination for the 26-year-old could be Real Madrid, with manager Jose Mourinho said to be a long-term admirer of the former Wolfsburg forward.


With Manchester City reportedly interested in securing the services of Madrid hitman Gonzalo Higuain, a swap deal could be in the offing, with City boss Roberto Mancini in favour of partnering the 24-year-old with his international team-mate Aguero.


Both City and Chelsea have been linked with a move for the Madrid forward, who has refused to speculate on his future so far this season.


Representatives of Dzeko have reportedly put out feelers over potential suitors this summer, although having cost £27 million when he joined from Wolfsburg in January 2011, City’s owners are unlikely to let him leave the Etihad Stadium on the cheap.


The Sun suggests Dzeko has ben offered to Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich, who turned down the chance to sign him.
