Croatia striker Mario Mandzukic joins Atletico Madrid from Bayern Munich

  • Print

MUNICH - Croatia striker Mario Mandzukic has joined Spanish champion Atletico Madrid from Bundesliga champion Bayern Munich.

The German club confirmed that the 28-year-old Mandzukic signed with Atletico after undergoing a medical and that it has also signed the transfer agreement.

Bayern vice chairman Jan-Christian Dreesen says, "We thank Mario Mandzukic for two great years here in Munich. In this time we won seven titles and his goals were often decisive for them. We wish him all the best."

Mandzukic scored 33 goals and set up eight more in 54 Bundesliga games for Bayern, but he had a fraught relationship with coach Pep Guardiola over the past season.

The signing of former Borussia Dortmund forward Robert Lewandowski, effectively his replacement, was announced in January.
