La Repubblica have reported that despite heavy rumors, Edin Dzeko will remain with Roma for the next season.
In his short time at Roma, newly appointed sporting director Monchi has been convinced of the Bosnian’s importance. Fabio Cannavaro’s Tianjin have made their interest in the player very known but Dzeko has already said no, despite a €30 million contract for three years. Dzeko’s daughter Una was born in Rome and his family is well settled in the capital: he wants to remains He now knows he can do it. To reassure him, Monchi has already told Dzeko that “we’re counting on you.” On the transfer market, Roma are still looking for another striker like Ajax’s Dolberg, who would be ideal for Roma both now and in the future. But today, Roma still needs Dzeko’s goals. And Dzeko has no intention of giving up and leaving: he has said no to the money, Dzeko is staying.
One, though, who risks leaving is Toni Rüdiger. Inter were in the lead for the player, but Sabatini’s arrival at Inter froze the track as Sabatini does not want to “loot” Roma players. Roma prefer to sell the player abroad as Chelsea, Manchester United and Bayern Munich are ready to make offers in order to get him.
