Former Juventus player Mandzukic has reportedly agreed to move to another Italian club on a free transfer.

Croatian striker Mario Mandzukic spent four years in Italy representing the league’s champions Juventus. Over the course of those years, the player managed to justify the €19 million fee with 44 goals for the Bianconeri. However, the player left last season on a free transfer to Al-Duhail.

At 34 years of age, it seemed like Mandzukic’s time in Europe was permanently over. However, one of Serie A’s giants decided to offer the player a contract after his departure from Qatar. We’ll give you a hint, it’s not the first time in recent years that they’ve signed a legendary striker from out of Europe.

We are obviously talking about AC Milan, who recently expressed their interest in securing the Croatian’s services. In fact, recent reports suggest that Mandzukic has already agreed on personal terms with the club and has even undertaken some medical exams. Milan has offered the striker a six-month contract worth €2 million in wages.

According to Italian journalist Alfredo Pedulla, several clubs offered longer contracts to Mandzukic but the player only wants to hold talks with the Rossoneri. Although the Croatia international is yet to sign the contract, he’s expected in Milan in the next 48 hours.
