Man United are reportedly set to make another bid for Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic in the January transfer window after their unsuccessful attempts to land him in the summer.
United was close to signing Mandzukic over the summer but withdraw due to concerns over his 33 years.
However, their decision to sell Romelu Lukaku to Inter and not replace him has made them light up front, with Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford both out injured.
Consequently, Sportvein connotes Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sounded out the Croat during a recent conversation with Vice-Chairman Ed Woodward.
Mandzukic is surplus to requirements at Juve, having been replaced in their squad by the returning Gonzalo Higuain, and was left out of their Champions League list.
He ultimately decided against an immediate move to Qatar, so a January transfer remains a possibility.
Mandzukic scored ten times in all competitions for Juventus last season.
But he has lost his central striking role following the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo and is open to leaving.
