Manchester City have rejected a bid from Juventus for Edin Dzeko.

The Mirror says City have reportedly rejected a £15.6million offer from Juventus for Dzeko.

City are prepared to sell the unsettled Dzeko just 18 months after splashing out £27million to sign him from Wolfsburg to help fund a move for No 1 target Robin van Persie.

However they want to recoup more of their outlay than Juventus have reportedly offered and know Bayern Munich are also interested.

Juve may return with a loan offer, but that is also likely to be rejected because City are only interested in permanent deals at this stage.
