Bayern are closing in on the transfer return Mario Mandzukic, who was on the verge of joining Manchester United.
Mario Mandzukic is said to have been charmed by the chance to return at the Allianz Arena, where he could have a key role adding depth up front.
Bayern only have one in Robert Lewandowski, and the experience of Mandzukic could serve them well.
Another previous report from Calciomercato explained that the 33-year-old had a deal in place to join Manchester United on deadline day, but turned down the move as he wasn’t keen on how rushed things felt.
Manchester United could no doubt have done with a winner like that in their squad, but it looks like he’s now heading for Bayern, who have also just signed another Croatia international in the form of Ivan Perisic.
