Bayern Munich forward Mario Mandzukic moves closer to joining Atletico Madrid after the two sides agree a fee for the 28-year-old.

Bayern Munich sporting director Matthias Sammer has revealed that Croatian forward Mario Mandzukic is heading for Atletico Madrid this summer.

The two clubs have agreed a deal for the 28-year-old, who moved to Bayern from Wolfburg in 2012.

"There is a verbal agreement between Bayern, Atletico Madrid and Mario Mandzukic," Sammer told reporters at a press conference.

"We want to thank Mario Mandzukic for his performances at FC Bayern and wish him all the best for the future."

Mandzukic has scored 33 league goals for Bayern in 54 appearances, but will now head to the La Liga champions as a direct replacement for Diego Costa, who has moved on to Chelsea.
