Inter ‘can’t afford’ Dzeko bid

Inter President Erick Thohir has ruled out a move for Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko, Sky Sports has reported, admitting the club can’t afford the Bosnia-Herzegovina international.

Dzeko has been a rumoured target for the Nerazzurri, particularly during the season as City manager Manuel Pellegrini preferred Alvaro Negredo. But Dzeko returned to the City side for the final weeks of the campaign and helped land the Premier League title, as well as perhaps moving out of Inter’s price range.


Thohir has told the Italian Press that while he wants to sign players the quality of Dzeko, he has to be more realistic. “I like players like (Sergio) Busquets, Luiz Gustavo and Dzeko, but today we cannot afford top players. I hope we can tomorrow,” Thohir said.


He added that Inter aren’t looking for attacking additions as a priority. “The first reinforcement we need is a strong defensive midfielder, someone like (Edgar) Davids or (Gennaro) Gattuso,” Thohir acknowledged.


Thohir also complimented the business planning of two Premier League clubs, stressing his opposition to UEFA’s Financial Fair Play proposals. “Financial Fair Play? Personally, I prefer the American model with the salary cap and luxury tax,” Thohir said.


“I understand City's and PSG's projects, but I prefer the model of Roma, Liverpool and Arsenal.”


Inter ended the Serie A season in fifth place, 42 points behind runaway title winners Juventus. The Turin club claimed the crown by 17 points from Roma, losing only twice all season.
