Goalhungry Star Agrees New Contract With Man City – Report

Edin Dzeko has reportedly agreed a new contract with Manchester City, extending his current deal until 2018, as reported by Goal.com.

This will not increase his wage, which stands at £150,000 a week currently.

Dzeko worked his way into Manuel Pellegrini’s plans last season after Sergio Aguero and Alvaro Negredo suffered injuries.

An announcement regarding the new deal is expected to take place shortly before the new season starts.

The Bosnian international began just 16 games under Roberto Mancini during the 2012-13 campaign, seemingly on the cusp of leaving City.

Both Inter Milan and Borussia Dortmund looked into his availability, but when they realised he was not available, they moved for other targets.

Pellegrini turned to Dzeko last season and was roundly rewarded for his faith. The gigantic striker began 23 league games, an increase of seven on those he started under Mancini, and scored 26 goals in all competitions to cap an impressive season, one which saw City win the league.
