Juventus

Interest grows in Mandzukic

29th September 2019, 20:27 by Gareth Freeman

Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic could be set for a move to the Premier League in January.

The Croatian veteran has fallen down the pecking order in Turin and hasn’t featured yet this season.

Mandzukic has been left out of the squad entirely for Juve’s two most recent matches, wins over Brescia and Spal, and seems set to depart in the winter window.

The 33-year-old is understood to have rejected the chance to move to Qatar recently as he is keen to continue playing in one of Europe’s big leagues and a move to England may well appeal.

Manchester United were linked with Madzukic over the summer but a deal failed to materialise as manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer opted to focus on signing younger players.

However, United could be tempted to launch a move in January and they may face competition from Premier League rivals West Ham.

The Hammers have reportedly already made contact with Mandzukic and are plotting a move when the January transfer window opens.
