AC Milan could be an ‘artist’ in the transfer market this winter. After being linked with Fikayo Tomori and Junior Firpo, Il Rossoneri managed to secure the services of veteran Croatian striker Mario Mandzukic.
Mandzukic previously played in Qatar with Al-Duhail after leaving Juventus. Milan signed him until the end of the 2020-2021 season with an option to extend at the end of the contract.
“AC Milan is pleased to announce the recruitment of Mario Mandzukic. The club and striker agreed to an agreement until the end of this season with the option to extend the contract at the end,” said AC Milan’s official website.
Mandzukic’s arrival is considered to be helping Milan in an effort to win the Scudetto this season. Milan is in a good position because it is at the top of the Serie A standings and is still competing in the Coppa Italia and Europa League.
Despite being 34 years old, Mandzukic can still provide a lot for Milan this season in a relatively short time. BolaSkor.com will provide the reasons why signing Mandzukic is right for Milan.
1. Experience and Quality
The age maybe 34 years old, even so, Mandzukic has very experienced playing in Italy for four years with Juventus. Plus there Mandzukic won four Scudettos in the Massimiliano Allegri era.
Not to mention his experience playing with Bayern Munich and the Croatian national team. The mentality he carries can have the same effect as Zlatan Ibrahimovic currently at Milan.
Especially in terms of quality, Mandzukic is a typical player that many coaches like. His job is to score goals and be a scourge for the opponent’s defense with his physical ability and goal-scoring instincts, but Mandzukic’s work ethic is also good.
Mandzukic did not hesitate to step down to help the team’s defense for the sake of the collective. He had already shown this when he was a wing striker at Juventus.
2. Duet with Zlatan Ibrahimovic
BR Football made a unique combination by combining Mandzukic’s age (34 years) with Ibrahimovi (39 years) who produced 73 points. In total, the trophies for both in European football were 53 trophies and 805 goals for club and country.
This is not more than just a number, but if you look at the quality and experience of both of them, plus both of them are not selfish (prioritizing the interests of the team), the duo of Mandzukic and Ibrahimovic has the potential to bring Milan to win a big trophy this season.
3. Depth of Squad
Quality, experience and for Stefano Pioli Mandzukic’s arrival certainly adds depth to the Milan squad. Now Pioli has many options to play in front of Rafael Leao, Ante Rebic, Ibrahimovic and Mandzukic.
Given the busy schedule, this season in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic plus Milan’s participation in the Serie A, Coppa Italia and Europa League, Mandzukic’s arrival is good for the club. Not to mention if Milan managed to secure Fikayo Tomori and Junior Firpo’s services.
