Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic’s furious reaction to being substituted in the Turin derby yesterday could trigger a move away from the Serie A club, according to Calciomercato.it.
The Croatian reacted badly to being replaced by Paulo Dybala in the 71st minute during Juve’s 3-1 victory over Torino. The 30 year old had missed some opportunities during the match and was visibly upset by manager Massimiliano Allegri’s decision as he kicked a water bottle and the wall on his way back to his seat on the bench.
After the match Mandzukic did apologise saying he needed to accept the coach’s decision but Calciomercato,it believe that despite his contrition, the forward’s days at the Serie A champions could be numbered with both West Ham and Tottenham looking to make a move for the striker.
Juve may however only allow Mandzukic to leave at the end of the season as targets such as Porto’s Andre Silva and Everton’s Romelu Lukaku may only be available next summer.
