Dzeko ‘not interested’ in Real Madrid

Roma striker Edin Dzeko’s agent has confirmed he isn’t considering a move to Real Madrid, whilst comparing the Bosnian to Marco van Basten.

The 30-year-old has been in sensational form this campaign, netting 24 goals in 32 appearances for the Giallorossi, leading to rumoured links to the Bernabeu among other clubs.

"He is already at a big club," Silvano Martina said to Mediaset after being asked about the Madrid speculation.

"Roma have a great ownership, a huge fan base and I don't see any reason to change if you are in a good place.

"The player has always been strong. He has scored over 200 goals in his career and in some games he is the only player who reminds me of the great Marco van Basten.

"The team plays for him and Luciano Spalletti leaves him free to play his game. Even in matches he has not scored, he has played very well.

"He had some difficulty last year in changing leagues, then with Spalletti he found consistency. The club has put their trust in him and he is showing what he can do."
