Two reasons why Man Utd are reluctant to sign Mario Manduzkic

The latest update in the Mario Mandzukic transfer saga is that Manchester United reportedly have two concerns about signing the Juventus forward.

According to the Daily Star, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is concerned by both the age of the 33-year-old, while his high wages are also said to be off-putting.

Especially when you consider how we’re already stuck with Alexis Sanchez, the highest earner in the United dressing room, who has created more problems than anything else.

Mandzukic was first linked with United this summer when the Red Devils tried to do a swap deal for Paulo Dybala involving Romelu Lukaku. That exchange is dead in the water now, just like the Argentine’s proposed switch to Tottenham Hotspur, as per BBC Sport’s David Ornstein.

Mandzukic would be expected to come in and replace Romelu Lukaku, who is finally Inter Milan bound, but also to work as backup for Marcus Rashford.

If a new striker doesn’t come in, Solskjaer will have to settle for Anthony Martial and Rashford, as well as hoping Mason Greenwood can make an impact as he breaks into the first-team after an impressive pre-season tour.
