Mandzukic ready to slash wage demands to move to Man United

Croatia striker Mario Mandzukic is ready to lower his wage demands in order to seal a move to English Premier League side Manchester United.

According to the Sun, the Juventus striker had demanded a £300,000-a-week wage demands but has slashed the demand to half after falling to pin a spot at his current station.

United are desperately looking for a striker after failing to replace Belgian Romelu Lukaku who moved to Inter Milan in the summer.

Mandzukic has been looking for a way out of Juventus after failing to feature in any game under Maurizio Sarri and a January exit now appeals inevitably after it emerged a deal had been struck for the player to train away from the main group. 

Rashford reliance

Solskjaer has had to rely on Marcus Rashford and 17-year-old Mason Greenwood for most of the campaign with Anthony Martial struggling with an injury he sustained in the defeat to Crystal Palace but made a comeback in United’s draw with Liverpool on Sunday.

The absence of a striker and the injury bug has seen United depend so much on Rashford who has looked fatigued with manager Solskjaer admitting recently that he could not afford to rest the striker.

United should get Mandzukic at around £10m but see him just as a short term option with the player turning 34 in May 2020.
