Man United offered shock striker after falling out at current club leads to possible January exit

Manchester United have reportedly been offered the chance to sign former Manchester City and current Roma striker Edin Dzeko.

Dzeko, 34, joined Roma in 2015, initially on loan from Man City, before making his switch permanent, in a deal worth £9.9m, as per Transfermarkt.

The experienced forward has enjoyed a very respectable career which has also seen him complete spells with the likes of Wolfsburg.

Despite the Bosnian marksman proving to be one of Europe’s most prolific forwards, there appears to be no place for him in Roma’s future.

A recent period of turmoil at the Italian club has seen them expelled from the Coppa Italian after suffering a defaulted 3-0 loss to Spezia due to fielding an ineligible player.

It was recently reported by Calciomercato that Dzeko is set to be one of the players axed in an attempt for his side to head in a new direction.

The Italian outlet claimed Dzeko was likely to make a loan switch to Juventus but had not ruled out a switch to either PSG or Inter Milan.

However, the latest in the ongoing saga comes from a recent written report from Gazzetta dello Sport (via Sports Witness) who shockingly claim Dzeko has been offered to both Manchester clubs.

Dzeko was famously part of Man City’s side who won the 2012 Premier League on the final-day, pipping United to the title, only on goal difference.

It goes without saying that the United faithful would never take to Dzeko which makes the claims even more shocking.

A move back to Man City seems odd too, the Citizens are flying in the league and are unlikely to make a move for a 34-year-old, that being said, Dzeko is a natural goalscorer, one most sides would find hard to turn down.

But surely… Surely… United aren’t that desperate for another forward?
