According to the English press , Chelsea has sent an official offer for Bayern Munich striker Mario Mandzukic ! The Sun claims that Jose Mourinho is looking for a quality striker as Torres , Eto’o and Demba Ba this season failed to reach double digits in goals.
Mou , therefore , see the Croat Mario Mandzukic , currently the top scorer of the German Bundesliga , as the ideal player that next season should lead the Chelsea attack . In addition , Bayern with the right offer would be willing to sell Mandzukic , because this summer arrives the Pole Robert Lewandowski from Borussia Dortmund, with which Mandzukic is not happy. It is speculated that the rights bid could be between 20 and 25 million.
Croatian international, according to Transfermarkt, is worth 23 million euros, but the buy-out price for him wont be less than 30 million euros.
Juventus is ready to pay the compensation as early as tomorrow, and Manchester United and Arsenal are also keen on the striker.
The Portuguese manager has no confidence in Chelsea “strikers”. Eto’o, Torres and Demba Ba this season have scored a total of 14 goals, three less than Mandzukic in the Bundesliga. Pep Guardiola probably will not be sorry to see Mandzukic off, because his replacement Guardiola already has, although he keeps saying that everything is great.
Mario is super, super professional. There is no reason for his departure – said recently Guardiola, but after Mario’s goal against Bayer Leverkusen, his 17th this season in the league, Mandzukic was not so happy, and some tensions before were alive on relation Guardiola-Mandzukic, so it could be all only an act.
