Dzeko waiting on future

Milan and Juventus target Edin Dzeko has conceded that his future at Manchester City depends on whether the big-spending club sign another striker.

City are trying to buy Arsenal’s Robin van Persie which would relegate Dzeko even further down the pecking order, possibly making him available for a move for Italy.

The Bosnian striker, speaking after City’s friendly with his former club Wolfsburg, admitted that he remains unsure.

“At the moment I am a Manchester City player but we must wait until the end of the month to see if van Persie or anybody else arrives,” he told reporters.

Dzeko, who was heavily linked to Milan before he finalised a move to City, continued by referring to the gap left by Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva in the Rossoneri’s team.

“I know that Milan have sold two great players – I follow your League and I’d like to play there someday.”

It was reported that Milan have already made a move for Dzeko as Ibrahimovic’s replacement but their loan bid was rejected.
