Fabrizio Romano is reporting that Croatian striker Mario Mandzukic will leave AC Milan this summer following his six month loan. The striker will not be offered a contract extension. He joined in the January transfer window but struggled with injuries, severely limiting his game time. He played 11 games in all competitions totalling 287 minutes but failed to register a goal hence prolonging the no. 9 curse.

Mandzukic via his Instagram has said:

“It was a pleasure to play for Milan – I am thankful to the club management for giving me the opportunity, to the coaching staff for their dedicated work and to my teammates who are not only excellent players but a great group of guys. I am happy that we have managed to get this great club back to the Champions League where it belongs and I wish everybody at the club only the best in the future.”
