Real keen on City target Dzeko

Manchester City’s bid to sign Wolfsburg striker Edin Dzeko could be under threat after it emerged that he is also a target for Real Madrid.

Jose Mourinho has talked about the need to sign another centre forward ever since he arrived at the Bernabeu during the summer and the Bosnian is reported to be top of his wish list.

Madrid are also reported to be eyeing up unsettled Manchester City forward Emmanuel Adebayor, but the Togo international is said to be second choice to Dzeko.

Roberto Mancini tried to sign the 24-year-old Wolfsburg striker this summer, but was put off by the German club’s prohibitive asking price of £40m.

With Juventus and Bayern Munich also reported to be interested in signing Dzeko, it looks as if there’ll be a bidding war in January.
