Man United Shift Focus To £40m Striker As Mandzukic Deal Remains Uncertain


Manchester United manager Solskjaer is still in the race to sign Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic in the winter, though, the Norwegian boss faces tough competitions from Borussia Dortmund and Qatari clubs.

The Red Devils manager could eventually pull out of the deal in the winter should he fail to reach an agreement with the player over his salary demands.

Meanwhile, Solskjaer has reportedly turned his attention to the Everton striker Richarlison who has been ever-present in the Toffees starting lineup this season.

The Brazilian is enjoying a great run of form at the Goodison Park under Marco Silva’s tutelage and The Express Sport are claimed that Solskjaer is keeping a close watch on his performance.

Though the Red Devils scored three goals against Partizan Belgrade in yesterday’s Europa League fixture at Old Trafford, Solskjaer and his employers believe that the goal-scoring problem is far from over and they are ready to lure at least one proven goalscorer to the Theatre of Dreams in January.

Other strikers linked with a move to Old Trafford include want-away Bayern Munich striker Thomas Muller, in-form RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner, Lille youngster Victor Osimhen, RB Salzburg’s wonderkid Erling Haaland and Lyon’s Moussa Dembele.

The Red Devils are expected to sign at leasing one of the listed players irrespective of how hard it could be to convince other clubs to release their best players midway through to the campaign.
