Manchester City fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are rather shocked at the claim coming from the The Sun and move over to our landlord to hear about it.
The publication have claimed that Edin Dzeko is set for a new deal with the club, and that comes as somewhat of a surprise to our regulars, as we thought he was on his way out of the Etihad Stadium this summer.
City have been linked with a host of forwards, including Chelsea player Romelu Lukaku, yet it seems that they could well be keen on keeping Dzeko at the club.
One of our punters notes over a beer that it is not the new contract that is the issue, but the fact that Dzeko may well want a move – and a greater chance of first team football.
The Bosnian forward has impressed of late and has moved ahead of Alvaro Negredo in the pecking order after a dip in form from the £18 million summer signing.
Our punters make the point that if City do lift the title this season, a huge part of that will be down to their forwards, and we can fully understand why a new deal for Dzeko is on the table.
Do you think that Dzeko deserves a new deal? Will he sign one? Let us know your thoughts below.
