The £27million January 2011 signing from Wolfsburg has started just seven games in all competitions for City in 2013 and is understood to be frustrated.

Dzeko has carved a reputation as a super-substitute after scoring 13 goals this season but the striker may not stay at the Etihad Stadium beyond the end of the campaign.

"I love the Bundesliga and I will return to the Bundesliga. The only thing I don't know is when," said the Bosnia international in the Daily Mirror.

Reports have even suggested Dzeko has held talks with Borussia Dortmund, who look set to lose star striker Robert Lewandowski this summer, with Bayern Munich and Manchester United heavily linked.

But Dzeko said: "That's not true. There is a lot of talk and a lot is written. If you believed every word, I'd be playing at Bayern Munich or AC Milan by now.

"Dortmund are a top club. Everyone in Europe can see that and with (manager) Jurgen Klopp, they have a great coach working there."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
