Mediaset: Milan unlikely to keep January signing for next season – the reasons

By Oliver Fisher -

It is unlikely that Mario Mandzukic will remain at AC Milan beyond the end of the season as things stand currently, according to a report.

Mandzukic was brought in as a free agent during the January transfer window in an attempt to bolster the centre-forward department and provide Zlatan Ibrahimovic with the opportunity to rest more and manage his workload.

However, we saw just 158 minutes of the Croatian before he suffered a muscle injury in the Europa League Round of 32 against Red Star Belgrade and he has been out ever since. His contract runs out at the end of the season, leading to suggestions his time at Milan could be a very short one.

According to the latest from SportMediaset (via MilanNews), Mandzukic is on a contract which expires on June 30th and his future is uncertain, but due to the physical problems and the fact he has played very little subsequently, the veteran forward has little chance of being kept for next season.
