Mandzukic set for Bayern exit

Bayern Munich striker Mario Mandzukic has told a Croatian newspaper that he will be leaving the Bundesliga club this summer.

No matter how hard I try, I can't play my best football in this style.

If we're honest, the style of play Guardiola has Bayern playing is not for me.

If that's how things are going to be, then I'm not happy and it's best for everybody if we go separate ways.

Guardiola is a fantastic coach and I wish him and everybody at the club all the best for the future," Mandzukic added.

I want to thank the club, who also had offered me a new contract.
