Manchester City ready to sell Craig Bellamy and move a step closer to signing £30 million striker

Craig Bellamy’s time as a Manchester City player appear to be coming to a close with several papers claiming today that the Welsh striker will be on his way to Tottenham when the transfer window opens later this summer.

Bellamy, 30, was, without doubt, one of City’s top performers last season. However, ever since the arrival of Roberto Mancini at Eastlands, things haven’t really worked out for the former Newcastle and Liverpool striker.

There were reports of a training ground bust-up between Bellamy and Mancini earlier this year and many claim that the pair no longer see eye-to-eye with one another.

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp is understood to be very keen to bring Bellamy to White Hart Lane and a there is talk of a possible £12 million deal going through in the coming weeks.

It has been reported this evening that Wolfsburg striker Edin Dzeko is close to joining Manchester City which would seem to indicate that Bellamy is in fact on his way out of the club.

Dzeko, 24, has been linked with dozens of Europe’s elite in recent weeks with Chelsea, Real Madrid, AC Milan and several others believed to be interested. The Bosnian international is considered by many as one of the brightest prospects in world football and City are reportedly ready to cough up £30 million to secure his services.

I have only seen bits and bobs of Dzeko in recent months but even I can see that he clearly has a lot of ability. During his time in Germany with Wolfsburg, Dzeko has scored an impressive 74 goals in 120 appearances. Personally, I would love to see Dzeko play in the Premier League next season and I’m sure the majority of City fans will be happy to see a player of his quality possibly arriving.
