Edin Dzeko has insisted that his performances will improve as he adapts to life in the Premier League and that there is much more to come from him, according to The Daily Mail.
Dzeko has scored four goals for Manchester City since his £27million move from Bundesliga side VFL Wolfsburg and the Bosnian is confident that once he has found his feet in the English league, he will be scoring goals for fun: “My whole career has been step by step, so I am used to this process.
“First it was the Bosnian league and then the Czech second league and first league and then Germany and now the best league in the world.
“It has all been gradual, and it seems that it must be step by step for me here too.
“There are a lot of great players here like [Carlos] Tevez, who are doing great things, and I am the new one, so I have to get used to it.”
Huge Cavani bid.
Napoli’s Edinson Cavan could become the subject of an £85million bid from Manchester City this summer if a report in The Daily Mail is to be believed.
The 24-year-old has been the Azzurri’s best player this season and currently leads the Serie A goalscoring charts with 20 goals in 26 games.
An Italian source confirmed that the Citizens attempted to sign the Uruguayan three months before they signed Edin Dzeko and it is understood that the English side are ready to resume their pursuit of the former Palermo player.
The report suggests that an offer of over £85million could be tabled to tempt the Napoli board to sell their top striker in the summer.
Silva credits yoga for form.
David Silva has revealed that his yoga exercises have helped him keep up with the pace of English football.
Silva has been a key player for Manchester City this season and the Spaniard has thanked his teammates for their help on the pitch and has also expressed his gratitude to his yoga teacher for helping him off the field.
The World Cup winner told The People: “I found it tough at the start, but my team-mates and the club staff have helped me settle in.
“I wasn’t in the right physical shape because I missed part of pre-season after my late arrival back from the World Cup.
“But since I’ve reached 100 per cent fitness-wise, my form has started to come back.”
He continued: “With so many games to play, anything that helps you prepare is good. So I have taken it up with the yoga teacher who helps Manchester United’s Ryan Giggs, which has helped me to stretch out after games.
“I do similar exercises with a lady at the training ground and I find the yoga has sharpened me up. It helps to make me quick enough to avoid the challenges I get in the Premier League.”
