Juventus Target Bayern Munich Striker

Italian giants Juventus are reportedly aiming to have Bayern Munich's Mario Mandzukic. The Croatian player would be pushed out if Robert Lewandowski goes to Bayern Munich, and it is possible that the Italian champs could be a probable destination.

The arrival of former Barca coach Pep Guardiola and Bayern's new found style means that the twenty seven year old would struggle to get matches. A leading sports website stated that Juventus is all set to offer 20 million with a 4 year deal (around 3.5 million a season).

Mario Mandzukic signed for Munich in the year 2012 and he has appeared thirty six matches in Bundesliga, scoring twenty three goals and being an essential part of Bayern Munich's three trophye winning season in 2012 - 2013.

In the mean time, Juventus is keen to escalate their efforts to extend Andrea Pirlo's deal in the midst of reports that the World Cup 2006 winner might move on in recent future. The thirty four year old Italian has just 7 months left in his present deal with Juventus, but he has opened the door to go outside Italy. Recently, he stated that he is not ruling anything out.

Some reports suggest that Andrea Pirlo has actually delayed any new deal dialogues till the next spring, sparking rumors that he is ready to leave Juventus. English Premier League club Tottenham are said to be one of the interested clubs to sign Pirlo to shake up their midfield ranks.
