Borussia Dortmund have joined Man United and Sevilla in the race to sign out of favour Juventus centre-forward Mario Mandzukic in the winter transfer window. Red Devils could miss out on the signing of one of their top winter transfer targets after Bundesliga giants entered the race to sign the quality striker.
German club could beat the likes of Man United to the centre-forward’s signing as there is a clearer path to the first-team for Mario, given Dortmund’s lack of depth and injury problems upfront. This will come as a big blow to the Red Devils, as they were close to agreeing on a deal with the £10m-rated veteran centre-forward.
Mandzukic hasn’t featured for the Bianconeri since Maurizio Sarri took charge this summer. The majority of reports are indicating that Croatian striker is free to leave to himself some game time. Marcus has hit a purple patch of form recently, but the Norwegian boss should still be pushing for the signing of a forward in winter.
Anthony Martial has struggled with injury troubles once again this campaign and the Red Devils would be taking a huge risk in relying on the duo and also talented star Mason Greenwood as their only options to lead the line.
Croatian centre-forward could prove to be a smart signing as he will also offer Man United another dimension in the front-line. The 33-year-old striker is one of the best headers of the ball in the world. Red Devils attackers could learn a lot from the man who knocked England out of the Mundial.
