With a six-month deal until June 2021, AC Milan is set to add Mario Mandzukic to its ranks with an option to expand for another year.
The issues with older football veterans are the unwillingness to get long-term contracts due to a decrease in their performance—especially strikers who would have reduced their target returns.
Croatia’s international striker Mario Mandzukic was signed by Duhail on a free transfer from Italy’s Serie A Juventus Championship.
Mandžukić terminated his contract with the Qatari side by mutual consent after ten appearances and two goals overall.
Mario Mandzukic has just landed in Milano to have medicals and then sign his contract as new AC Milan player until June 2021 [with option to extend until June 2022]. Here we go confirmed. ???????????? #transfers #ACMilan

After joining them from Spain’s Atletico Madrid in 2014, Mandzukic scored 44 goals in 162 matches in all competitions for Juventus.
Among other clubs, he has previously played for German sides Bayern Munich and Wolfsburg.

His last match was in the FA cup against Marine—which puts forward a fantastic performance against an eighth level of English football.
He will be ready to rejoin Mauricio Pochettino, the former manager of Paris.
Pochettino’s face to face will have to be delayed as he is presently in isolation following a positive COVID-19 test.
The player is ready to leave, PSG is prepared, Tottenham and Daniel Levy now have the choice.
FIKAYO TOMORI TO JOIN MILAN ON THE VERGE
Fikayo Tomori, from Chelsea, is set to join AC Milan. The contract is expected to be completed on loan with a purchase option of around €30m next week.
As Chelsea still sees Tomori as a quality player, the option to buy is under obligation.
In the next few days, Tomori will fly to Milano.
