Bayern Munich have agreed terms with Edin Dzeko over a move to the Allianz Arena but are yet to agree a fee with Manchester City for the striker, according to German broadcaster Sport1.
Dzeko, 26, began the 2011-12 season in blistering form for Roberto Mancini’s side but appeared to lose his confidence and the faith of his manager in the second half of the campaign, starting just eight games after the turn of the year.
It wouldn’t be a huge surprise if Roberto Mancini was ready to consider offers for Edin Dzeko as the Bosnian international has been a bit part player for much of the last campaign, despite the fact that the former Wolfsburg man netted 19 goals in just 26 starts last term.
Dzeko arrived at the Etihad Stadium for a fee of £27m back in January 2011 and after struggling to make an impact in the second half of the previous campaign the lanky forward did get his goal-scoring boots on last term, only to see Roberto Mancini opt to use the likes of Mario Balotelli and Carlos Tevez as his main strike-partners for summer signing Sergio Aguero.
Bayern Munich saw their season go up in smoke last term as Borussia Dortmund retained their Bundesliga title and Chelsea snatched the Champions League from their grasp, as the Allianz Arena no less. Therefore it may be not be all that surprising that boss Jupp Heynckes would be looking for added attacking options.
Though Mario Gomez was unstoppable, scoring 38 goals in all competitions last season, Bayern Munich’s other striking options; Nils Petersen, Ivica Olic and Thomas Muller, only managed a combined total of 11 Bundesliga goals between them, so perhaps Heynckes is looking to bring Dzeko in to help carry the goal-scoring burden.
