Manchester United were believed to be keen on signing the Croatian but he is now expected to put pen-to-paper on a deal with Juventus after spending just one season at Atletico Madrid.
Mandzukic scored 20 goals in 42 appearances at the La Liga club, however it is reported that the former Bayern Munich man had a strained relationship with eccentric manager Diego Simeone.
Carlos Tevez is expected to leave Juventus and return to Argentina with Boca Juniors, making way for Mandzukic’s arrival.
According to Daily Star, Juventus agreed a £13m transfer fee for the 29-year-old and he will now undergo a medical before completing the deal.
The Champions League runners-up posted a photo to its official Twitter page showing Mandzukic’s arrival at Turin airport:
