Giornale: Milan to beat Man Utd to Juventus forward; personal terms agreed

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have agreed personal terms with Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic ahead of a possible January move, a report claims.

Rossoneri director Zvonomir Boban bemoaned the fact that the club did not sign more experience in the summer, and we recently learned that there is a budget in January to add exactly that.

According to il Giornale (via Goal), Milan have taken a step towards adding more veteran presence by agreeing personal terms with Mandzukic.

The Croatian did not even make Juve’s recent Champions League squad and is struggling for opportunities under Maurizio Sarri given the wealth of attacking options available.

In addition, they have already received the approval of Juventus for him to arrive in January, as the Bianconeri want to sell him to Milan rather than Inter.

Mandzukic, 33, has played 162 games for Juve in all competitions, netting 44 goals and adding 24 assists.
