The 28-year-old has been brought in to replace Spain forward Diego Costa, who sealed a move to English Premier League club Chelsea last week..

Mandzukic is considered surplus to requirements at Bayern Munich following the arrival of forward Robert Lewandowski from Bundesliga rivals Borussia Dortmund.

Mandzukic has spent two years with the German champions, scoring 33 goals in 54 Bundesliga appearances. He netted the opener against Dortmund in the 2013 Champions League final, which Bayern won 2-1.
