Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic in The Joker disguise

With his current side set to take on his former employers Bayern Munich in the Champions League next week, Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic has set his sights on ending the Bavarian's tilt at winning the treble in Pep Guardiola's farewell season.

The Croatian target man is currently out of action with a calf strain but is obviously hatching a plan to make his grand return just in time to help Juve see off the team (and coach) that so hastily disposed of him two summers ago.

Indeed, it's a ploy so devious that Mandzukic appears to have even adopted an evil alter-ego to carry it out.

Question is, does he really look like a man with a plan, or just a dog chasing cars?
