The arrival of Robert Lewandowski might not mean the end of the Mario Mandzukic’s career at Bayern Munich as the German champions are preparing to offer improved contract terms to the Croatian, according to Tutto Mercato.
Mandzukic scored the equalising goal against Manchester United last night in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie at the Allianz Arena, which the Bavarians went on to win 3-1.
The Croatian’s current deal with the European champions expires in 2016 and Bayern Munich are planning to extend that contract with improved terms.
There is no guarantee that the Croatian will sign the new contract as some of the top European clubs, such as Arsenal and Chelsea, are closely following developments in Munich.
It was recently claimed that Mandzukic’s agent Ivan Cvjetkovic was in London to meet the representatives of Arsenal and Chelsea regarding the transfer of his client, signalling a potential exit.
Mandzukic is believed not to be keen on a move to England though and has been linked with a move to the Italian peninsula with Juventus.
Mandzukic is the top goalscorer for the German champions this season in all competitions, netting 25 times in 46 appearances.
