Inter Milan striker Edin Dzeko is very close to signing a new two-year contract with Turkish giants Fenerbahce.
This according to Italian broadcaster SportMediaset, via FCInterNews, who report that only the official announcement remains before the Bosnian signs his deal with Fenerbahce, as he is ready to leave the Nerazzurri on a free transfer after two years.
Dzeko’s current contract with Inter runs out at the end of this month.
The Nerazzurri have offered the Bosnian international a new deal to stay another season. However, Inter’s offer is only for a one-season extension.
Reportedly Dzeko is not convinced by the Nerazzurri’s offer of a new one-year deal. He feels that the club no longer see him as a central part of the project.
The Bosnian has decided that he wants a move away from the Nerazzurri to join a club where he’s more central to the project.
According to Mediaset, Fenerbahce have offered the 37-year-old a two-year deal. The contract will see the former Roma and Manchester City star earn €4.5 million net per season plus add-ons.
Moreover, the broadcaster notes, Fenerbahce will pay Dzeko a €5 million sign-on bonus when he joins.
