Manchester City not worried by Citizens star’s contract delay

Edin Dzeko Unlike Luis Suarez, Sergio Aguero has committed to Manchester City this summer and the Citizens fans in the Football Transfer Tavern could not be happier.

One player who is yet to commit to the club however is Bosnian striker Edin Dzeko.

But according to The Mirror, there is no panic at the Etihad Stadium over Dzeko’s failure to sign a new deal.

The 27-year old is one of six City players with just 12 months left on their current deals but is expected to agree an extension after playing a key role in their title triumph last season.

A senior club source said: “We are comfortable with Edin’s situation. Nothing is imminent because has been away at the World Cup and is now taking a break.

“But he is certainly valued here and the feeling is a new contract will be agreed in due course.”

Roma and Inter Milan had been interested in signing the former Wolfsburg striker and his Bosnian team-mate Miralem Pjanic has urged him to join Roma.

According to reports, Dzeko told Pjanic that he would one day like to move to Italy but it looks likely that Dzeko will extend his contact in the next few weeks.
