Man United Transfer News : Mario Mandzukic agrees an attractive two-year old personal agreement with Manchester United with extension offer.
Manchester United were speculated to sign Mario Mandzukic this summer, as the rumours of the Croatian International fueled this summer. Since Juventus were preparing to offload him.
In further development, according to a report by La Gazzetta dello Sport and Tuttomercatoweb, Mandzukic has agreed a deal with Manchester United, which will keep him at the Old Trafford till 2021, with an option to extend it for one more year.
Moreover, the 33-year-old striker will earn €6 million per season at Old Trafford and his price-tag is set at €15 million. It was earlier reported that the Croatian International will be included in Romelu Lukaku deal.
But that offer was snubbed by Manchester United, and this deal is reported to be different from Lukaku and Paulo Dybala swap deal. Although, with the signing of Mandzukic as a striking reinforcement, it surely signals towards the possible departure of Lukaku.
Currently, Manchester United and Juventus are reportedly amid a Dybala and Lukaku swap deal but with the Argentine International reportedly refusing to join the English giants, the transfer is at a stalemate.
Probably, Mandzukic has been sold to acquire the services of Lukaku at a lower price, as Mandzukic’s transfer fee to Manchester United is still unknown.
With the Red Devils making foour signings this summer, they are set to make a comeback at the top-4 of the following campaign of the Premier league.
The announcements by both the clubs are yet to be made to confirm the transfer deal. With this, it is also remained to see whether Dybala will move to England or not, as only last five days of the transfer window are left.
