According to Italian media outlet Gianluca Di Marzio, Manchester United are reportedly interested in signing Juventus attacker Mario Mandzukic this summer, and Red Devils fans were quick to react via Twitter.
The link to the 32-year-old suggests that manager Jose Mourinho is looking for a player that can not only provide some competition and cover for Romelu Lukaku up top, but one that would also push Alexis Sanchez on the left-hand side, too.
That is where the majority of the 6ft 3in attacker’s appearances for the Serie A giants during the 2017/18 campaign came from despite him naturally being a centre-forward, including when he destroyed Real Madrid right-back Dani Carvajal by scoring two goals in his side’s 3-1 win at the Bernabeu in the quarter-finals of the Champions League in April.
We asked Man United supporters to vote on our poll to see whether they would want Mourinho to bring the Croatia international to Old Trafford this summer, and a slight majority of 58% said they would.
The arrival of the versatile forward in Manchester would surely seal Anthony Martial’s fate, with the out-of-favour Frenchman being heavily linked with a move away in recent weeks having lost his place in the starting XI to Sanchez.
