Mandzukic, Wilson high on Man Utd list

London, Oct 3 (Agencies) | Publish Date: 10/3/2019 1:15:37 PM IST

Mario Mandzukic and Callum Wilson are high among Manchester United’s striker targets ahead of the January transfer window.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer recently admitted the club will look to sign a new goal scorer in the new year and it is understood that they are continuing to monitor Juventus’ Mandzukic and Bournemouth’s Wilson.

Mandzukic, 33, will be available again when the window re-opens after turning down moves to United, Paris Saint-Germain and a club in Qatar in the summer.

The Croatian has just less than two years remaining on his contract and was not included in Juventus’ Champions League squad and has not played domestically yet under new boss Maurizio Sarri either.

Wilson, 27, has more than three years left on his Cherries’ deal but would fall in line with United’s policy of trying to recruit top English talent - and he has scored five goals in seven Premier League games during Bournemouth’s impressive start to the campaign.

It was reported in the summer that Lyon’s Moussa Dembele was another player on United’s list as they considered replacements for Romelu Lukaku, who they sold to Inter Milan.

Lukaku was also of interest to Juventus and, according to Sky in Italy in July, the Italian club and United discussed a swap deal involving Paulo Dybala - a top target for Tottenham and a player who has only made two starts this term under Sarri.
