Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko is not ruling out a move away from the Premier League champions.
The 26-year-old says all he can do is perform to the best of his abilities for Roberto Mancini’s side but everything else, including his future at the Etihad Stadium, is up to the club.
Dzeko admits that he would be tempted with a move back to Germany, stating he would “love to go back there sometime”.
“Anything is possible,” he told the Sunday Mirror. “I wouldn’t rule out leaving now or in the summer, but I’m trying not to think about it.
“It is up to me to try to use the opportunities I am being given at City – everything else is beyond my powers at the moment.
“Honestly, I’m not thinking about specific clubs now, but I would like to return to Germany.
“It’s too early to speak about that at the moment. I am a City player right now and I don’t see a reason to talk about anything else, but yes, I love the Bundesliga and would love to go back there sometime.”
Dzeko has impressed as a substitute for City this season, scoring six times after coming off the bench, but the former Wolfsburg forward has played down his ‘super-sub’ tag and admits that team performances fluctuate throughout a match.
“People can say whatever they want,” Dzeko explained. “But I’m not a super-sub and I never will be.
“Yes, I have scored quite a few goals coming off the bench – but when I enter as a sub I don’t feel the pressure to score.
“Sometimes the team doesn’t play very well, or I don’t play well because I lack continuity. It can happen and that’s all part of football.”
