CM: Milan dealt blow in pursuit of Juventus veteran – he wants Man Utd move

By Oliver Fisher -

Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic is waiting for a call from Manchester United despite reportedly agreeing terms with AC Milan.

Shock reports on Thursday from il Giornale (via Goal) claimed that Milan have taken a step towards adding more experience by reaching an agreement with Mandzukic, including a green light from Juve for the deal to go through.

Zvonomir Boban has expressed frustration at the fact that the club did not sign more leaders in the summer, and we recently learned that there is a budget in January to add exactly that.

Mandzukic is struggling for opportunities under Maurizio Sarri given the wealth of attacking options available and is yet to make an appearance this season.

According to, both Milan and rivals Inter are looking at the idea of signing the 33-year-old in January.

The Croatian striker however is apparently waiting for a call from the Premier League, and his goal in January is to go to Manchester United, especially if Max Allegri is in charge.
