Al-Rayyan are expected to meet Mario Mandzukic’s camp tomorrow after emerging as favourites to sign the Juventus striker.
Mandzukic is Qatar-bound and had been linked with moves to Al-Gharafa and Al-Duhail.
However, Calciomercato.it reports Al-Rayyan have leapfrogged their rivals and will speak to the Croat’s representatives on Tuesday.
Gazzetta dello Sport agrees there will be talks tomorrow but adds the 33-year-old is also considering a three-year contract from Al-Gharafa worth €7m a season.
Al-Rayyan, meanwhile, would be offering €8m after tax, although the duration of their proposal has not been disclosed.
