A proven goal-scorer in European football, Mario Mandzukic appears to be heading towards the twilight stages of his career.
The Croatian has 188 goals in his professional career, scoring for giants like Bayern Munich, Atletico Madrid and Juventus. But he has struggled to find himself in favour with Maurizio Sarri for the Bianconeri this season, not even playing a single minute of football for the side.
That has understandably led to speculation of a potential move away, with reports suggesting Manchester United have him high up on their short-list of striker targets.
Now, according to Italian publication, Tuttosport, Mandzukic has chosen to join the Red Devils in January, and that he is prepared to relocate in December to help speed up his adaptation process when he officially joins the following month.
After hearing the transfer update on the 33-year-old, United fans took to Twitter to voice their thoughts on the situation.
Many supporters of the Manchester side insisted that it would be a smart decision to bring in the veteran forward, and insisted he still has plenty to offer Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
