Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko is not ruling out a move away from the English Premier League champions.
The 26-year-old, who has found himself on the bench for much of the 2012/13 season, said 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, who joined City from Wolfsburg, admitted he would be tempted with a move back to Germany.
“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 Bosnia international has played down his ‘super-sub’ tag.
“People can say whatever they want,” Dzeko said.
“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.”
