Inter striker Edin Dzeko could play a decisive role in this evening’s Supercoppa Italiana clash between the Nerazzurri and Juventus, but things could very easily have been reversed.
This is highlighted in today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who note that the Bosnian has twice been very close to joining the Bianconeri despite eventually moving to Inter.
Dzeko has been a major transfer target for both the Nerazzurri and the Bianconeri for some time, with his form at Roma marking him out as an obvious addition to strengthen either team’s attack.
The Bosnian looked to have been on the verge of making the switch to Juventus in the summer of 2020 after several transfer windows where he was linked to both clubs, but in the end he stayed at the Giallorossi.
Then, last summer, the 35-year-old had been among the Bianconeri’s main transfer targets in attack, but it was Inter who swooped in and signed him as a replacement for Romelu Lukaku, and now he will line up against Juventus at the San Siro.
