In Summer 2010, he moved to Germany to play for VfL Wolfsburg (60 appearances and 20 goals) and Bayern Munich (88 appearances and 48 goals). In the 2014/15 season, he went on to play for Atletico Madrid scoring 20 goals in 43 appearances before joining FC Juventus. In his five seasons with FC Juventus, he made 162 appearances and scored 44 goals. In January 2020, he joined Qatari side Al-Duhail with one goal in 7 appearances.

Mandzukic has won 24 trophies including 1 UCL, 1 UEFA Super Cup, 1 FIFA Cup World Cup, 9 championships and 12 between national Cups and Super Cups. He is the second-best scorer ever of the Croatian national team with 33 goals in 89 appearances.

Book him to break the number 9 curse. Finally a real number 9, going to cause havoc in the box. I have a feeling he could play on the RW for us and attack the back post in the box as we love to attack on the left with Theo and Rebic. He’s going to be dangerous

I don't know where he will be used, i doubt he will be a starter, i look at him as vice Ibra, or when we are behind and we want extra man up front.

however i do believe he is a winner, and we need that, Wish you well Mandzukic, please keep the hunger going.

If you read Juve forums they're pretty much all either mad at him for going to milan, wishing him the best or wishing he came back to juve (which isnt possible, the way they treated him)..

but literally everyone speaks and thinks highly of him and would take him back in a heartbeat.. So.. If its a good signing for juve's squad depth (which they already have quite some) its almost a god-tier signing for our squad depth (which is almost non-existant without a huge quality drop).

Never really followed him closely,but im actually happy he's here and hope he does well for milan..

It's a great piece of business. We can basically win every game which is tied by 70th minute now.

Welcome!

Imagine him and Ibra together in the opponent's 6 yard box, the aerial threat would be too much.

How screwed are the rest of the league? We're already sitting at the top of the table despite all our absences based mostly on teamwork and talent and we just added one of the biggest bullies the league has seen in the last 10 years. Kudos to the management for wanting to win the league, this has Maldini all over it. Gazidis would never...

Juve ultras message for Mandzukic

Mario Mandzukic joined Milan today and returned to Serie A, so Juventus ultras wished him ?six happy months ? without victories? and he replied with ?pride? at their praise.

The striker spent five years in Turin before leaving for Al-Duhail in January 2020 and became a fan favourite due to his goals, assists and remarkable work ethic.

This was evident in a message sent by the Curva Sud Juventus 1897 group on Instagram.

Marione, you will always remain in all our hearts, for what you?ve done, for your passion, for the special rapport you had with all of us.

?We loved him for the grit he put into every game. We loved him for the fear he stoked in opponents with his sheer size. We loved him for his refusal to laugh and the rare times he did.

?It?s a long list, but we truly loved this player. But Marione, for the next six months he will wear the Rossoneri colours of Milan.

?He is a professional, he wanted to come back to Italy at all costs, we cannot bring ourselves to condemn him, but it will hurt to see him as an adversary on the field, just as we think it?ll hurt him to play against us.

?At the age of 34, almost 35, these things can happen. So good luck Marione, we hope you spend six happy months in Italy, but don?t blame us if we wish you no victories. Ciao Marione? Your Curva, the Bianconeri.?

Mandzukic read the post and replied to it on Instagram.

?Thank you for these wonderful words? I will always be proud.?

Mandzu is a signing who's not to be judged on number of goals, but rather his functionality to the team when coming on as an impact sub.

Already looking forward to seeing him and Ibra on the pitch at the same time to let the aerial bombardment commence.
