Dzeko: I’m not joining Milan

Manchester City’s Edin Dzeko has dismissed suggestions that he could replace Zlatan Ibrahimovic at Milan.

Dzeko has been paired with the San Siro giants and agent Sead Susic claimed earlier this week that there was a “70 per cent chance” that the player would be heading to the Diavolo.

“My agent is Irfan Redzepagic and neither of us are pushing for my departure from City,” the Bosnian told his official website.

“I'm only focused on Manchester City and I do not care about media speculation, especially when it comes from people who have nothing to do with me.

“After new speculation about my departure from City and the statements of individuals, who are talking like they are my agent, I would like to inform the public that I have not had any negotiations with Milan.”

City have also insisted that the player is not in talks regarding an exit.

“The club have no knowledge of Mr Susic, nor has it given a mandate to any third party to discuss the transfer of Dzeko, who remains a Manchester City player,” said a spokesman.

The Rossoneri are looking for a new forward after deciding to sell Zlatan Ibrahimovic to Paris Saint-Germain.
