Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko wants to stay at the Etihad Stadium, according to the Bosnia and Herzegovina international’s agent Irfan Redzegapic, who insisted no offers have been made for the striker.
The 29-year-old found himself struggling to get into Manuel Pellegrini’s starting XI last season, netting just six times in 31 appearances for the club, leading to speculation of a move away from City.
Juventus and Atletico Madrid are suggested to be linked with a move for Dzeko, who cost City £27 million from Wolfsburg in January 2011.
But Dzeko’s representative Redzegapic insisted that there have been no approaches made for his client and fully expects him to continue on his current deal with the Citizens, which has three years left to run.
“When you read the media reports, it looks like all clubs want Dzeko, I’ve also heard some of Bosnian league teams are after him,” Redzegapic told Bosnian newspaper Nezavisne.
“Every day he is linked to some other club: first it was Atletico Madrid, then Juventus, now Roma, Chelsea.
“These are all just rumours that go on during every transfer window. I am bored of repeating that those stories are not true.
“He hasn’t rejected any offers because there were no offers. And that is the whole truth. Edin has a contract with Man City until 2018 and is happy at the club.
“Many things influenced his performances last season, like the two injuries he had, but he has no reason to be unhappy at the club he won four trophies with. So the chances of him leaving are none.”
