Mario Mandzukic

Three-time European champions Manchester United are no longer interested in a move for Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic.

This is according to The Athletic which said that Manchester United won’t sign Mario Mandzukic in the January transfer window as expected.

Earlier reports had claimed that Manchester United will sign the Croatian international as a short-term replacement for Belgian international Romelu Lukaku who left the club this summer.

Manchester United have not been able to replace Romelu Lukaku since the burly striker left for Italian Serie A club Inter Milan.

The Nerazzurri paid around £74m for Romelu Lukaku, and he has been able to reward them with goals in the Italian top flight.

The Inter Milan striker has scored ten goals in 13 games in the Italian Serie A this season.

It has been a successful first season at Inter Milan to date.

Mario Mandzukic signed a new contract at Juventus earlier this year when Maximiliano Allegri was still the manager, but the Italian tactician left in the summer, and that led to the appointment of Maurizio Sarri as his replacement.

The Juventus striker is further down the pecking order in the attacking department at the club with the advent of Sarri as manager.
