Premier League giants Manchester United will have to pay 10 million pounds to sign veteran Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic when the transfer window reopens in the New Year.
This is according to the publication from the stables of the Daily Express.
Recent reports had claimed that Manchester United have reached an agreement with the veteran Croatian striker and that it’s left for the club to agree on a transfer fee with Italian Serie A giants Juventus for his services.
Manchester United are in the market for attackers ahead of the January transfer window as they bid to boost their attacking output for the second half of the season.
Mario Mandzukic was linked with a move to Manchester United in the summer but the retired Croatian international stayed on.
He has already turned down a lucrative move to Qatar, while there’s also an offer from the Major League Soccer (MLS).
Mario Mandzukic turns 34 in the next few months but the former Atletico Madrid and Bayern Munich hitman believes that he can still perform well at the highest level.
He has found playing time hard to come by at Juventus since manager Maurizio Sarri took charge of the team and a move to England would be good for all the parties involved.
