Catalan daily Sport is reporting that Barcelona are readying summer bid for Bayern Munich striker Mario Mandzukic.
The Croatian has fallen out with the Bavarians boss Pep Guardiola and he looks set to leave Alianz Arena having been left out of the squad for the league clash against Borussia M’gladbach.
With Bayern having already secured the services of Robert Lewandowski, it is believed the German giants are set to cash in on the Croatia international.
Sport understands that Barcelona look to take advantage of the situation and lure the experienced forward to Camp Nou in the summer.
The Catalans have been hot on the trail of Mandzukic for over a year now, but they could face stiff competition from Juventus, Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund, who are all believed to be keen.
The 27-year-old has made a total of 40 Bundesliga appearances since joining from Wolfsburg, notching 25 goals in the process.
