They report that the German side believe the player will add more threats to their attacking set up in the second part of the season, and they are willing to leapfrog United in the race for his services.
Solskjaer is reportedly in search of some highly experienced strikers ahead of the winter transfer window and he has also been linked with 38-year-old star Zlatan Ibrahimovich, should he fail to capture the Juventus man.
As it stands, Mandzukic is reportedly ready to move to Old Trafford and it will be surprising if Dortmund eventually sign the player ahead of the Old Trafford outfits.
