Some Spurs fans have urged the club to snap up Croatian legend Mario Mandzukic after the veteran striker confirmed on social media that he was now a free agent.

Mandzukic left Juventus to sign for Qatari club Al-Duhail in December but took to Twitter earlier in the week to confirm that his contract with the club had been terminated after a little over six months.

Tottenham were one of the clubs who were reportedly interested in the striker before he completed his move to Al-Duhail (Calcio Mercato).

Spurs ultimately failed in their pursuit to land a forward during the January transfer window after Harry Kane was sidelined with a hamstring injury.

Signing a back up to Kane is reportedly one of Jose Mourinho’s priorities when the transfer market opens in the summer (Football Insider).

Some Spurs fans are convinced that Mandzukic would be the ideal choice to serve as Kane’s understudy.

Here’s how they reacted after the former Juventus star confirmed that he is now without a club:


Spurs Web Opinion

Mandzukic has not played at the highest level for more than a year now. So, it is impossible to tell how sharp or fit he is. At 34 years of age, there is definitely some risk involved. However, if the striker can prove his fitness, perhaps handing him a one-year deal could be an inspired choice as Mandzukic’s experience could come in handy for us.
