Croatian striker Mario Mandzukic is to leave Bundesliga side VfL Wolsfburg to join rivals Bayern Munich, his manager said on Wednesday.

"I was contacted by Karl-Heinz Rummenigge who confirmed that Bayern and Wolfsburg have agreed on Manduzkic's transfer," Ivan Cvjetkovic told AFP.

"Since it was the Bayern chairman who called me I consider the transfer settled."

The news of the 26-year-old striker's transfer was expected to be announced on Bayern's website soon, he said, but refused to elaborate.

Local media reported that Mandzukic was to sign a three-year-deal for which Bayern would pay 13 million euros ($16 million).

Mandzukic, dubbed 'Super Mario' here, scored three goals for Croatia at Euro 2012 in Poland.
