A center forward of depth and experience who can take over from Ibrahimovic. Better if you are used to Italian football. In recent days there has been talk of Leonardo Pavoletti, but Milan’s real goal, according to the latest market rumors, would be another: Mario Mandzukic. Experienced and winning striker (Champions League with Bayern Munich, many Scudettos with Juventus), the Croatian is currently released after his brief adventure in Qatar with the Al-Duhail shirt.
CONTACT – The rumors rebounded from Croatia reported a series of meetings – between December and the last few weeks – between the Rossoneri management and Mandzukic, who is training every day and is polished. The former Juve is ready to challenge himself in an important square and is thrilled by the desire to return to play. As reported by the newspaper Tuttosport, there would have been direct contact between the player and Maldini, from which a mutual satisfaction would have emerged (the class of ’86 would be willing to accept a 6-month contract).
DECISIVE DAY – The situation is evolving and could be resolved, in one direction or another, in the short term. Today, therefore, could be a key day. A striker – anything but a spare – like Mandzukic would raise the level of Milan’s offensive department, guaranteeing Pioli a valuable alternative to the owner Ibrahimovic. Therefore, watch out for possible developments on this market front.
