Manchester United could get their wish of signing a prolific goal scorer in January realized after the Croatian striker declared his interest in joining the Red Devils.
Mario Mandzukic has been tipped to complete a move from Juventus when the January transfer window opens amid reports sporting director Fabio Paratici flew to London this week to finalize the deal at United’s London HQ.
Mandzukic, who scored nine goals in 25 Serie A appearances last season, has been deemed surplus to requirements under new boss Sarri.
Having rejected a move to Qatar, the Croatian international has revealed his intention to start training with the Red Devils next month, before the January transfer window opens and a move can be completed, to ensure he is ready to make an instant impact.
It is believed that he would offer a new dimension to United’s attack under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, which has struggled for goals this season but recently been boosted by Anthony Martial’s return.
