Edin Dzeko is understood to have agreed on personal terms with the Italian Serie A team A.S. Roma, but the transfer fee is yet to be agreed upon, according to the reports from Sky Sports.
The clubs aren’t able to settle on a particular transfer value for the “Super-Sub”, as Manchester City seem to want more out of the sale of the striker.
After having won two Premier League medals in a matter of just four years at the club, the Bosnia and Herzegovina national wants to seek his future elsewhere as City manager Manuel Pellegrini admits that he might move, after getting only 11 starts last season in the league.
The 29-year-old was bought by Manchester City for £27 million from the Bundesliga club VfL Wolfsburg. But after the recent buy of Liverpool’s Raheem Sterling for £49 million, his chances of starting have gone from miniscule to microscopic, unless injury plagues the side.
With Stevan Jovetic set on a loan move to Inter Milan, this move would mean the only two hard-and-fast strikers in the squad would be Wilfried Bony and Sergio Aguero. City might be looking at other strikers now, but this transfer season hasn’t been their best as Fabian Delph has also been ruled out for the season.
Red Devil forever. Engineer by nature, Football by the heart. Sugar, Spice and a whole lotta tadka on the side.
