Bayern Munich’s Mario Mandzukic 11/13 to join Chelsea this summer
Competition: Premier League
Market: Mandzukic to join Chelsea
Odds: 11/13 @ 888 Sport
While Chelsea were previously said to have agreed a deal to sign Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa, the London club are also hot favourites to procure the signature of Bayern Munich striker Mario Mandzukic.
The Croatian international, 28, has enjoyed a good campaign with the German giants, scoring 21 goals and making six assists in the league and Europe. He boasts a great record with the Bavaria outfit since joining two seasons ago, scoring 48 goals in 88 games.
With Bayern having renewed striker Claudio Pizarro’s contract for another year, and signing Dortmund front man Robert Lewandowski this summer, Mandzukic could suffer from a lack of playing time for Bayern in 2014/15.
Chelsea have desperately needed a trusty striker with an impressive goal-to-game ratio too. Jose Mourinho’s side had Fernando Torres, Demba, Ba and Samuel Eto’o leading the line at times last season, but none of the trio hit double figures for league goals.
As a result, 888 Sport are giving odds of 11/13 for Mandzukic to join Chelsea this summer. The Blues are desperate to challenge for silverware after having a trophyless campaign in Mourinho first season back at Stamford Bridge.
