28-Year-Old Forward Atlético Madrid La Liga
Mario Mandzukic Contract Information:
Signed a four-year contract with Atletico Madrid in July 2014 after transferring from Bayern Munich.
Mandzukic had surgery Friday to repair a broken nose suffered in Tuesday's Champions League loss to Olympiacos on Tuesday and he is expected to miss at least 10 days, the BBC reports.
Mandzukic remained in the game after taking an elbow to the face, and he will be required to wear a protective mask. "Normally he would be available to play in 15 days but with a mask he could do so in 10," Atletico Madrid doctor Pedro Luis Llopis said. If he can return within that time frame, he should be eligible to play Juventus on Oct. 1.
