Mandžukić returns to Italy, signs for league leader AC Milan
MILAN (AP) - AC Milan signed 34-year-old Mario Mandžukić on Tuesday and supported 39-year-old Zlatan Ibrahimovic in attacking the Italian leaders' title challenge.
Milan said the Croatian veteran had "agreed a deal until the end of the current season with the option to extend the contract for the next".
Mandžukić is returning to Serie A after a period in Qatar with league champions Al-Duhail, where he won four titles in a row with Juventus from 2015-19.
Milan are aiming for their first Serie A title in 10 years and lead city rivals Inter by three points. Milan are also in the second round of the Europa League and face the Red Star Belgrade next month.
Mandžukić will wear the No. 9 jersey, the club said.
The Croatian won a Champions League title with Bayern Munich in 2013 and lost 4-1 to Real Madrid for Juventus in the 2017 final.
