According to reports from Spain, cited in the Express, the Rojiblancos striker no longer appears for advertising purposes in the club store with his image being replaced by playmaker Arda Turan, which could be telling that his future lies away from the club after just one season.
Recent reports from the Mirror stated that the Reds were set for a £25m battle with Spurs over the 29-year-old.
The Croatia international signed for the La Liga outfit on a four-year deal last summer, and despite finishing the season as the club’s second top scorer in his debut campaign on 12 goals, Diego Simeone may already be looking to offload the forward.
According to beIN commentator Matteo Bonetti, the cause of his rumoured imminent exit from Atletico is not an unhappiness over his performances, but rather issues concerning his attitude:
Diego Simeone and Pep Guardiola have both found that Mandzukic carries some attitude issues along with his talent & drive.
