Man Utd boss plays down talk of Dzeko bid

United have been linked with a January bid for the Bosnian striker and assistant boss Mike Phelan stated over the weekend that they were taking a close look at the 23-year-old.

“It is an age-old story,” Fergie said.

“Every time someone does well against Manchester United we are going to buy him the next day.

“There is nothing from Manchester United at this moment concerning Edin Dzeko.”
