Manchester United target Mario Mandzukic is closing in on a £13m move to Juventus.

The Bayern Munich striker has posted pictures on Twitter of him in Turin, and Juventus have confirmed that the 29-year-old is undergoing a medical this morning.

“I feel very good, the city is nice and I was here two or three times to play. It’s a nice city and I hope I will be happy here,” Mandzukic said.

“I can only say that I will do my best. I will fight for my new team. I know Juventus have great supporters, that is why I am happy.


“It is now my new home and don’t worry, I will give my best.”

The Croatian only joined Atletico last summer from Bayern Munich and scored 20 goals in 43 games for the Spanish side.

Mandzukic's move looks to open the door for Juve's former Manchester United and West Ham striker Carlos Tevez to return to Boca Juniors.
