Our landlord cannot wait to tell us what the Daily Star has to say and after hearing that one of the top clubs in the Premier League could well be interested in Mario Mandzukic, we cannot blame them.
The club in question is reportedly Manchester City who currently have huge injury issues up top and as our regulars note over some turkey, are always worried about the fitness of star man Sergio Aguero.
The Atletico Madrid forward has been sensational for Diego Simeone and his men this term and is bagging goals left right and centre and that is something Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini wants at the Etihad Stadium.
The Croatian international forward would cost at least £25 million and our punters are not totally convinced that the Spanish side would be willing to sell half way through a season in which they are trying to fight the big two once again and defend their La Liga title – not to mention going one better in the Champions League.
Manchester City meanwhile are desperate to keep Frank Lampard at the club and will make a decision on his future in the coming days.
Manchester City fans. Can you really see Atletico selling Mandzukic part way through the season? Was it a mistake to allow Negredo to leave? Let us know your thoughts below.
