Milan battling Benevento for free transfer of former Juventus striker Mandzukic – report

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan and Benevento will fight it out for the signing of Mario Mandzukic, a report claims, with the striker set to return to Europe.

It is seemingly no secret that the Rossoneri are in the market for a new centre-forward with doubts over the future of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and the general lack of depth in that particular position.

According to TodoFichajes, Mandzukic is once again a target after he was heavily linked with a move to Milan back in January.

The 34-year-old moved to Qatar last December after struggling to make an impression under Maurizio Sarri, but his contract has been terminated after just six months meaning he is free to sign with another club.

Both Milan and Benevento are both looking for an experienced striker ahead of next season, with Pippo Inzaghi looking to keep his side in Serie A after securing their return to the top flight and Milan likely needing to replace Ibrahimovic.
