Mandzukic signed a four-year contract with Atletico Madrid on Thursday after transferring from Bayern Munich, the club's official web site reports.

After Robert Lewandowski joined Bayern Munich from Borussia Dortmund on a free contract, Mandzukic became excess talent up front. He is a dynamic scorer and should be a strong part of the Atletico attack in place of Diego Costa, who was sold to Chelsea FC.

Mandzukic is believed to be close to joining La Liga side Atletico Madrid, the BBC reports.

Mandzukic is under contract until 2016, but with Robert Lewandowski joining Bayern Munich from Borussia Dortmund, Mandzukic looks to be a spare part now. He's a very solid goal-scorer, having found the back of the net 33 times in 54 Bundesliga games with Bayern, and he should fit in nicely at Atletico in place of Diego Costa, who is transferring to Chelsea FC.

Mandzukic, who missed Croatia's World Cup opener against Brazil due to a yellow-card accumulation ban, scored two second-half goals during Wednesday's 4-0 win over Cameroon.

Croatia are a much more dangerous team with Mandzukic on the pitch, and he'll be heavily relied upon in the Group A finale against Mexico, with the winner advancing to the knockout stage.

Bayern Munich said they have no intentions of selling Mandzukic, and could even offer him a new contract, Sky Sports reports.

Mandzukic's name has started to come up in transfer rumors after Bayern inked Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski to a pre-contract that will bring him to the club on July 1. Club president Karl-Heinz Rummenigge was the one who said the club would be open to extending Mandzukic's stay, although his playing time will likely be more limited next season with Lewandowski around.

Mandzukic will miss Croatia's opening World Cup match against Brazil on June 12 due to the red card he received during the second leg of their playoff matchup with Iceland, the Associated Press reports.

Mandzukic is a very important part of the Croatian attack, which will obviously be needed against one of the tournament's favorites. The Bayern Munich striker is in solid form this season in the Bundesliga and the Champions League, and he will be one to watch for in June.
