Manchester United are expected to move into the transfer window in January 2020 and try and fix the problems in their team especially with regards to their forward department. The Red Devils are facing a crisis in that department after their Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez departed from the club. Consequently, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has identified a player for whom he is set to break a club policy and he is none other than Mario Mandzukic.
According to a report carried by Metro, Manchester United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is all set to sign Mario Mandzukic in January and break the club policy of signing in only youngsters at the club. The Juventus striker has been linked with a possible move to Manchester United since the summer transfer window but it now seems like the deal might materialise in January 2020.
The Croatian player was linked with several other teams but he rejected all those offers and is still part of the Juventus squad. Another reason for Manchester United’s interest in him is that Juventus are willing to let him go cheaply- for a reported cost of £9 Million since he is no longer their regular starter.
Currently, Manchester United have as many as three attacking options in their team- Mason Greenwood, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial. However, injuries have exposed the vulnerabilities of the team and even cost them matches.
Only time will tell if the deal eventually happens.
