Mandzukic: Qatar deal off?

Mario Mandzukic’s proposed deal with Al-Duhail has reportedly broken down due to a difference in wages.

Mandzukic seemed to be finally leaving Juve, having been frozen out of their first team all season.

The former Croatia striker was left out of the Bianconeri’s Champions League squad and hasn’t played a minute of competitive football under Maurizio Sarri.

However, Tuttomercatoweb reports his deal with Al-Duhail could be in jeopardy and that he is on his way back to Italy.

The Qatari side had negotiated a €5m fee to sign the 33-year-old, but the website writes the two parties are in disagreement over personal terms.

Despite that, TMW suggests a deal could yet be struck to reunite Mandzukic with his ex-Juve teammate Medhi Benatia.
