Real Madrid ready to spend €35-40m on Bayern striker Mario Mandzukic next summer [Punto Pelota]
Spanish TV show Punto Pelota claimed to have the inside scoop on a big transfer rumour on Thursday night as François Gallardo announced that Real Madrid will spend €35-40m on Bayern Munich striker Mario Mandzukic next summer, regardless of Los Blancos’ transfer activity this winter.
Gallardo is a well known football insider, who correctly broke the news that Real Madrid were in for Gareth Bale back in early 2013.
Gallardo told Punto Pelota:
My understanding is that while [Real Madrid president] Florentino [Perez] said that Real Madrid were not going to sign, the coaching staff believe the club still need another striker.
Accordingly, Real Madrid’s shopping list for next season, regardless of what happens in December, includes the name of a Bayern player. It’s Mandzukic.
Noticeably, the rumour linking Mandzukic to the Santiago Bernabeu comes in the same week that Borussia Dortmund forward Robert Lewandowski announced that he is moving to Bayern in January.
Watch the Spanish report in which François Gallardo says Real after after Mandzukic below.
