By the end of the transfer period on October 5, FC Bayern Munich reportedly intends to sign a backup for goal scorer Robert Lewandowski, among other things. The name of a triple hero from 2013 is also traded.
As the Munich “tz” speculates, Mario Mandzukic could play a role in the deliberations of the Bayern bosses.
The Croat, who in 2012/2013 as a regular under Jupp Heynckes was one of the success factors in the first triple in the club’s history, is without a club after his contract with the Qatari club Al-Duhail in July.
Recently there have been very specific rumors about the change of the now 34-year-old to the Russian first division club Lokomotive Moscow. However, the capital club has not yet reported completion in terms of personnel.
Mario Mandzukic fits into FC Bayern’s requirements profile
Mandzukic would fit exactly into Bayern’s requirement profile. The Croatian vice world champion knows the club, would be relatively cheap and would probably have no problem playing second fiddle behind Lewandowski in Munich.
Even his sporting class should be enough, despite the rather sobering commitment to Qatar, with just one goal in seven games, to allow the Polish striker to take his breaks from time to time.
Moscow should lure Mandzukic with the prospect of appearances in the Champions League. In Munich he could even play for the title in the premier class again in his old days.
Another candidate for the vacant position on the offensive should be Mario Götze. The 2014 world champion is still without a club after the end of his time at BVB and, like Mandzukic, would be available for a free transfer. According to “Bild” Götze, of whom coach Hansi Flick is still very convinced, could be a kind of last-minute solution if the Munich team cannot land another striker by the coming weeks.
