English Premier League side Manchester United is considering pulling out of signing striker Mario Mandzukic due to his wage demands.
Italian tabloid Calcio Mercato reports that United are willing to pay Mandzukic’s over €5m salary demands but are unwilling to fork over €5.3m asking price as they feel they should be able to sign an unwanted player such as himself for free.
Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been out to look for a short term solution to his striking problems after being hit by injuries early in the season and saw Mandzukic, who is considered surplus to requirements at Juventus, as his ideal player.
His attraction was due to the fact that his contract will be running out in the summer and thus will be coming cheaply and a short team deal gives them the opportunity to acquire their top targets in the coming summer transfer.
A section of fans though is against the deal after questioning the striker’s fitness after not featuring in any game for Juventus this season.
Manager Maurizio Sarri has decided to use Cristiano Ronaldo, Gonzalo Higuain, and Paulo Dybala in his their firepower and revealed that the Croatia international was training away from the first team.
