Mandzukic signs for Milan

NEWS DIGEST – AC Milan have completed the signing of former Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic on a contract until the end of the season.

Mandzukic has been available on a free transfer since leaving Qatari side Al-Duhail last July and his deal with Milan contains the option for a further year.

The 34-year-old will add even greater experience to Milan’s attack, which is being spearheaded by the evergreen, and in-form, Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

In joining Stefano Pioli’s side, Mandzukic will bring his vast experience to a team chasing a first Serie A title since 2011.

Mandzukic won the Scudetto four times during his spell with Juventus, while he also won the Bundesliga twice and the Champions League when he was at Bayern Munich.

Given Ibrahimovic has only just returned from injury, scoring twice on his return in Monday’s win over Cagliari, the presence of Mandzukic will provide Pioli with the opportunity to rotate his starting XI.
