Muller or Mandzukic: Who Should Be United’s First Choice Target




Lack of goals and experienced strikers have seen United remain in the 14th position in the league standings, two points above relegation zone.

This has forced Solskjaer’s into making move for top strikers — including Mario Mandzukic, Timo Werner and Thomas Muller — who will share the club’s goalscoring burden with Marcus Rashford.

Meanwhile, many reports claimed that Juventus want-away striker Mario Mandzukic, 33, is closer to joining the Red Devils as he has reportedly reached an agreement with the club’s hierarchy.

Nonetheless, rumors linking Thomas Muller to Old Trafford is gaining weight after the player seems to be falling out of favor at Bayern Munich.

Three League starts from possible eight, is a confirmation that Muller is surplus to requirements and reports claimed that the German international is ready to quit at Allianz Arena.

Should Mandzukic remain Solskjaer’s prime target due to his goalscoring exploits for Juventus or the Norwegian should turn his attention to the World Cup winner and striker whose ability to score goals is never in doubt?

Irrespective of who Solskjaer chooses to be his main target, the fact remains that both players will be a short-term project at Old Trafford considering their age and the physical nature of the League.
