Juventus may part ways with Mario Mandzukic with Gonzalo Higuain tipped to replace him, should Maurizio Sarri take charge.

The Croatian striker recently signed a contract renewal with the Bianconeri, tying him to the club until 2021 but reports from Italy suggest he may not remain with the club beyond the summer.

Goal Italia’s Romeo Agresti reports that there would be no place for Mandzukic in Sarri’s potential Juventus while Higuain would be a more likely candidate to take over up top.

Mandzukic reportedly turned down offers from China in favour of remaining in Turin, however Borussia Dortmund are linked with a move for the striker.
