Edin Dzeko: Has started just seven matches in all competitions in 2013

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."

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.
