Man United fans react as club is linked with Mario Mandzukic move

According to Italian media outlet Gianluca Di Marzio, Manchester United are considering a summer move to bring Juventus attacker Mario Mandzukic to Old Trafford, and Red Devils supporters have been quick to have their say on the rumour.

Despite being 6ft 3in tall and having played as a centre-forward for the majority of his career, the 32-year-old has often been used as a left winger for Juve with the large majority of his 43 appearances in all competitions this season coming from there.

The Croatia international netted on 10 occasions – he has 34 in 129 games in total for the Serie A champions according to Transfermarkt – but he is far more than just a target man as he is technically sound and happy to work back defensively for his team out wide – something Jose Mourinho demands.

Man United supporters, who have also urged their club to sign a forward who dominated Chris Smalling on the pitch this year on Twitter, took to social media to give their thoughts on the link, and while one described him as “technically better than Lukaku”, another said he is “10x better than Rashford”.

Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
