Mandzukic is believed to have agreed to a transfer to Juventus for a fee of up to 18 million Football Italia reports.

The move seems like a pre-emptive strike to the possible move away by Carlos Tevez, who has been heavily linked to a return home to Boca Juniors. Mandzukic was very good for Atletico in his single season after spending multiple years with Bayern Munich.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Mandzukic managed 20 goals and five assists in 38 appearances in all competitions this season.

A respectable total for the Croatian, but his numbers were down a bit this year as teammate Antoine Griezman carried a much larger role on offense. Mandzukic is said to be unhappy at Atletico Madrid and has been linked with a host of Premier League clubs, so he could be on his way out the door this summer.

Mandzukic scored his sixth goal of the season during Atletico Madrid's 2-0 win over Elche on Saturday.

Mandzukic took a season-high seven shots and scored his second goal of the season during Atletico's 3-1 loss at Valencia on Saturday.

Mandzukic hasn't been as prolific a goal-scorer as he was with Bayern Munich, though he appears to be getting comfortable in his new surroundings. If he can continue his high shot-totals, he could break through in upcoming matches against Espanyol and Getafe after the international break.

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.

Mandzukic scored in the 38th minute of Atletico Madrid's 3-2 Champions League loss at Olympiacos on Tuesday.

Mandzukic is coming off an 18-goal season for Bayern Munich, and while he will have to work harder for his goals this season, he is still expected to easily reach double-digit goals. He now has two goals in his last three club matches in all competitions and he'll look to keep it going Saturday against Celta Vigo.
