Mario Mandzukic joins Bayern Munchen

Bayern Munich have confirmed that striker Mario Mandzukic will be moving to Bavaria on a four-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

The Bavarians have lost Ivica Olic this summer, and although they have re-signed Claudio Pizarro, they were also linked with a move for Manchester City`s Edin Dzeko.

We’re delighted to sign a top Bundesliga centre-forward in Mario Mandzukic, who has already demonstrated his incredible goalscoring qualities during EURO 2012 in Poland and Ukraine. He will strengthen our squad even further,” said sporting director Christian Nerlinger of FC Bayern’s sixth summer signing ahead of the upcoming 2012/13 season.

Mandzukic, dubbed ‘Super Mario’, scored three goals for Croatia at Euro 2012 in Poland. However, he could not save his side from being eliminated in the group stage.
