Entries in Edin Dzeko (31)
Everyone needs friends around them and it seems Edin Dzeko is no different with the Bosnian attempting to manufacture a move for his international team mate to Miralem Pjanic.
The Daily Express today reported that Arsenal will make a summer move for Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko, in a further attempt to replace to void left by Robin van Persie last summer. The Gunners are said to have joined Napoli and Borussia Dortmund in the race to sign the City striker.
Manchester City’s struggles this season have been attributed, in part, to their failings in the summer transfer market.
Despite possessing one of the most expensive front lines ever assembled, Manchester City’s strikers have failed to do the business for Roberto Mancini this season.
Manchester City may well have to look elsewhere to find their Balotelli replacement, as Real Madrid officials are rumoured to have already opened talks with the in-form Edinson Cavani (accoridng to the Daily Mail). The Citizens have been one top striker short since the sale of their controversial Italian, and the strong, hardworking Uruguayan was top of the list to replace him. Madrid's interest, however, will be a great stumbling block in their attmepts to land the striker. it will be a hard enough task as it is, with Napoli not too keen on selling, and making a stand on the terms of his sale. The club has stated that only way they will discuss a deal is if someone triggers the player's substantial release clause... of £52 million.
With Financial Fair Play just 'round the corner, and with City's current season failing to hit the heights of their last one, new director of football Txiki Begiristain (no, I can't pronounce that for you) has set the ball rolling for wholesale changes at the club (yet again).
It would appear that the Manchester City hierarchy are getting a little bit twitchy by the club's largely disappointing season thus far and it would seem they are ready to act in the only way they know how, by spending like its going out of fashion. The Daily Mail are reporting that the current target of their affection is £45 million rated Napoli striker Edinson Cavani.
