From Italy: Manchester United in strong position to sign Mario Mandzukic for £8.6m this January

Everything indicates that Mario Mandzukic’s next club will be Manchester United, according to reports from Italy.

Man United’s interest in the Croat dates back to the summer, with Mandzukic mentioned initially as part of a deal involving Paulo Dybala and then considered as a target in his own right, although no such move materialised.

Since then, however, United and Juventus have reached an agreement in principle over Mandzukic ahead of the January transfer window.

According to Calcio Mercato, there is very little standing in the way of the striker moving to Old Trafford.

Juventus want €10m (£8.6m) for the 33-year-old – a sum that United are said to be open to meeting in the next window.

And if they are not willing to pay that nominal fee, they ought to have their heads looked at carefully. Here is a player who gives United two things they desperately lack: maturity and goals.

Do the maths, Ed. This one really is a no-brainer.
