Edin Džeko desperate for Wolfsburg exit

Table of Contents
VfL Wolfsburg and Bosnia-Herzegovina striker Edin Džeko is still hopeful of leaving the Bundesliga club before the end of August.

The 24-year-old was AC Milan’s main transfer target last summer and is now the primary objective for Juventus.

However, Wolfsburg are reluctant to part with their prized asset and has continually declared he is not for sale.

"I’m infuriated with Wolfsburg. They broke their promises made last summer," Džeko told German newspaper Sport Bild.

"I was asked to stay for another year and, in case Milan were still interested in me, I would be released.

"This summer the Rossoneri looked for me again, but they weren’t the only ones. Juventus have done and are doing everything to have me, but every offer is not seriously considered.

"Dieter Hoeneß told me that the agreements made last season are no longer valid, because they were made by (then) coach Armin Veh and manager Frank Aehlig."

He added: "I want to play for an important club and the Wolfsburg directors know that.

"I have clearly stated that Juventus represent the best option for me. My contract clause of €40 million should not have been an obstacle to my sale, it was introduced last summer to look after the club.

"My agent confirmed that Wolfsburg have received many offers close to this sum from Italian, Spanish and English clubs. I had the opportunity to leave and it was denied to me. I hope by August 31 this can be sorted out.

"If I cannot decide when to leave, they certainly can’t stop me refusing offers that do not entice me at all."
