Manchester United lead Dzeko chase
Monday 14 December 2009
Manchester United's hopes of signing Edin Dzeko have been boosted today after it was revealed AC Milan have cooled their interest in the striker.
Reports today quote Milan managing director Adriano Galliani as saying: "We are looking for an out and out attacker. We like Dzeko, but he doesn't have the characteristics we are looking for."
Milan had been considered United's main rivals for the Wolfsburg striker's signature but it would now appear the way is clear for United to sign the player in January.
The 23-year-old Bosnian helped Wolfsburg to the German title last year and has continued his good form this term. He scored against Sir Alex Ferguson's team in both Champions League group stage matches.
