Dzeko to Manchester City, yet another striker at Eastlands

Edin Dzeko has passed a medical at Manchester City and will most likely debut at the club against Wolves in the League next week.
After much hype regarding his transfe the Bosnian finally joined Eastlands, although according to a number of text messages sent before the transfer was confimed, he would've preferred to join Juventus.

The cost to make the move possible is much less than what was originally wanted by Wolfsburg. The 40 million euro price tag was lowered greatly and City ended up paying 27.4 million pounds to have the services of the hitman.

Whether City needed anymore strikers was another question. With the likes of Baotelli, Tevez, Santa Cruz, Adebayor and Jo not even getting regular starts, as well as Mancini's preferance of a packed mifield, Dzeko will have to prove his worth very quickly to get a regular birth upfront.

Dzeko is understood to have penned a 5 year contract, which also include bonuses relating to Champions League qualification and final league placing.

City have edged out the likes of Bayern Munich and Juventus to get the final signature.
