Manchester United will reportedly announce the signing of Mario Mandzukic from Juventus in less than three months from now as reporters claimed that both parties have reached an agreement.
Everything is pointing to the fact that the player’s spell with the Scudetto Champions is over having failed to feature in any of the matches played by Maurizio Sarri’s side so far this season.
The 33-year-old equally failed to report to training last week, fuelling speculations that he’s more than willing to part ways with the Serie A giants.

Italian publication Calcio Mercato are confirming that the player’s switch to Old Trafford is done and dusted but it awaits an official announcement which will be delayed till the next transfer window in January.
It should be recalled that the player had already turned down the chance to join a Qatari club in the summer as he was keen on remaining in Europe amid interest from the Old Trafford outfits.
Mandzukic’s experience will be very important to Solskjaer’s dream of winning some trophies with his young crop of players in the nearest future.
Though, at 33, the Croatian looks more or less like a short-term solution to United’s goalscoring problem as he could retire anytime soon.
