Mandzukic on Bayern Munich radar

Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic is considering a loan move to Bayern Munich with option to buy after rejecting Manchester United.

According to multiple sources, he was all set for the Old Trafford transfer on deadline day for €15m only to turn down the switch.

Now Sky Sport Italia claim Juve are in advanced talks with Bayern for the Croatian to move on loan with either an option or an obligation to buy for €15m.

Das Bild, on the other hand, maintain it was Bayern manager Niko Kovac who suggested Mandzukic as a target, but the club hierarchy were unconvinced.

It would be a return to Bayern Munich for Mandzukic, who already played here from 2012 to 2014.

He is now 33 years old and only signed a new contract in April, tying him to Juve until June 2021.
