Mandzukic to sign for Bayern Munich

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.
