Spurs bid for Mandzukic?

Spurs bid for Mandzukic?

The Italian press would have us believe that we have submitted a £19.45-million bid for a 29-year-old (30 in May) who has been sold in each of the last two summers.

Mario Mandzukik is a Croatian international who had a successful spell at Bayern Munich where he scored 33 Bundesliga goals in 54 games before moving to Atletico Madrid. He wasn't deemed to be a success by the Madrid club despite scoring 12 goals in 28 games.

They sold him to Juventus for £14.81-million last summer and with Juventus possibly losing Alvaro Morata back to Real Madrid, they have a buy-back clause in his contract, the Italians do not want to sell him. He has scored 10 goals in 25 Serie A games.

I would be surprised if the story had legs, it sounds very much like the Italian press simply linking our name to a player to create a story. There are far better options out there and players who would fit our system better, it isn't a system for 30 -year-old and beyond players.
