Chelsea were close to signing Roma striker Edin Dzeko in the January transfer window, but the deal didn’t go through and the Bosnia international decided to remain in Rome.
The 31-year-old has now revealed that nobody actually wanted him to move to Chelsea which made him decline a switch after terms have been agreed by both clubs
“Chelsea is a big challenge and I know what kind of a club that is, I’ve been at Man City and I wasn’t ready to move to Chelsea,” Dzeko told Goal.
“Nobody I spoke to wanted me to move to Chelsea so I decided to stay.
“It has been tough period, a lot of stories and information, true and false, were written, everything went through my head, I wasn’t clear or certain of anything at the time.”
“Now I will play two games for Bosnia and then we’ll see [where will I play].
“I have another two years of contract, so Roma has to be asked about it too.”
