Former Roma striker Edin Džeko spoke to the Daily Mail about his transfer to Inter Milan in the second half of the summer window. The Bosnian attacker trained under Mourinho for a few weeks before deciding to leave the Giallorossi after 6 years in the capital.

“Last year there were some talks with Juventus, with Inter two years ago it was almost done,” revealed Dzeko.

“I really didn’t think about leaving Roma after Mourinho’s arrival: I talked to him, I had a year left on my contract and I told him that, since it was the last year of my contract, if an offer were to arrive at my doorstep we would evaluate it.”

“Roma signed Abraham and Inter came forward with an offer. Nobody expected to see Inter in the position they are in now, but I had no fear. I know my qualities and there are great players here, we are going in the right direction.”
