Pellegrini tells Man City he wants Dzeko over Cavani

Manchester City are dropping their pursuit for Napoli striker Edinson Cavani.

The Manchester Evening News says new boss Manuel Pellegrini has told City chief executive Ferran Soriano and football director Txiki Begiristain that he believes Edin Dzeko could thrive in the system he intends to introduce at City.

And that means the pursuit of Cavani has cooled, although City will still monitor the availability of a man who has scored 104 goals in the last three seasons.
