Edin Dzeko agrees to pen a new short-term deal with Inter Milan. The Bosnian striker will be signing a one-year extension as he feels he still can compete at the higher level. Dzeko has lucrative offers from MLS but he wants to continue for at least a year at Inter. The former Roma striker has proven his worth at Inter by being a consistent performer. Dzeko also helped Inter to take an early lead in the Derby della Madonnina.
Lukaku has been out for most of the season, and Correa has struggled to settle at Inter. But Edin Dzeko stepped up for Inter and has provided crucial goals even at 37 years of age. Also, Inter are struggling financially and do not want to go into the market to find a replacement for Dzeko. Moreover, he is willing to reduce his wages to stay for another season.
Edin Dzeko agrees to pen a new one-year deal
Edin Dzeko’s new contract will run till June 2024, and he will get €5 million in wages, in contrast to his €6 million in the previous deal. The former Roma striker had better offers on the table, but he wants to continue with Inter and win more trophies.
The Bosnian striker settled well into Inzaghi’s system as he is excellent in linking up play. The Italian manager likes to start him in big games as Dzeko acts as a focal point to move the ball forward. The former Roma striker uses his aerial prowess to win the long balls and is a constant threat from corners and set-pieces. He has lost his pace and acceleration but his clever positioning makes up for it. He drops to attract his marker and make space for Lautaro. Real Madrid also have been monitoring his situation, but the Bosnian striker has decided to stay at Inter.
