Manchester United assistant Mike Phelan rates Wolfsburg striker Edin Dzeko as ideal for the English league:

"I'm sure there are a number of teams looking at him. Are we one on them? We are looking at talent all of the time and we are in there with the rest of them,'' Phelan said.

"He showed his threat in the game at Old Trafford and he appeals because he is a tall, skillful boy and in some ways he is an ideal player for the English league.

"He has stature, his feet are good and he is producing some good performances. I am sure everybody has looked at him.''

My take:

To be sure - Dzeko has the size, skill and instinct to succeed at the next level.

He may well be the next Ibrahimovic.

In terms of his destination - the player himself has said that his dream is to play for AC Milan.

Can't blame him for that can we? Milan is a great city and it has a soccer pedigree that few clubs in the world can match.

I wish I was Dzeko: A beautiful soccer life is ahead of him - whether it's in England or Italy.
