TMW: Dortmund join Milan, Man Utd and Sevilla in hunt for Croatia veteran

By Oliver Fisher -

Borussia Dortmund have become the latest team to join the race to sign Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic, a report claims.

Recently, Italian outlet il Giornale (via Goal) made the bold claim that Milan have agreed personal terms with Mandzukic ahead of a January move, with Juventus happy to let him join the Rossoneri.

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.

We also recently reported that Zvonomir Boban and Paolo Maldini are determined to add some experience to the current squad, something owners Elliott Management were happy to provide funds for.

However, TMW have provided an update on Mandzukic’s situation by claiming that the player’s move to Qatar – which seemed to be only one step away – is now off.

The report mentions that Manchester United and Sevilla are interested in a January move for the 33-year-old, but now Borussia Dortmund have joined the hunt.

The Bundesliga side are looking for a centre-forward to reinforce Lucien Favre’s attacking options, and the player is open to the idea of a return to Germany, where he made over 50 appearances across a two-year spell with Bayern Munich.

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