Manchester United closing in on €9m veteran striker - Mario Mandzukic, manchester united

Manchester United are increasingly growing confident of securing veteran striker Mario Mandzukic when the transfer window reopens in January.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Manchester United have been dealt a massive blow in their quest to return to greatness. With the red devils having made a crucial error, in a massive summer clear out.

Solskjaer had intended on cleaning the slate at Manchester United and inspiring a fresh start. However, the manager trusted the lads, a tad too much, and United has in effect failed to deliver since opening day win against Chelsea.

The Norwegian had promised the club faithful of a few new faces in the Winter, especially in the attacking department. Apparently, Solskjaer will look to make a minor fix of his summer flux by signing Juventus ace Mario Mandzukic.

According to Goal, Man Utd are confident that a transfer fee of £9 million (€10m/$11m) will be accepted by Juventus, who are also looking to offload the striker in January.

As per reports, Mario Mandzukic is expected to sign an 18-month contract until the summer of 2021 and would earn a salary of £4.4m (€5m/$5.5m) a year.

Mandzukic has enjoyed four fruitful years at Juventus since arriving from Atletico Madrid in 2015. But has been deemed surplus to requirements by new coach Maurizio Sarri.

Should a deal pull through, Mario will be expected to lead the lines, and ease the pressure off Marcus Rashford, – who has found it difficult to find the back of the net, since Romelu Lukaku’s exit in the summer.

The 33-year-old is however only expected to keep the seat warm, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer continues his original plot to return the team to its former glory.
