Tuttosport: Milan consider signing a new striker but former Juventus man has not been contacted

By Oliver Fisher -

It appears that AC Milan have no interest in signing free agent Mario Mandzukic as cover for Zlatan Ibrahimovic, according to a report.

Ibrahimovic will be out for the next two or three weeks with a hamstring strain, which has led to suggestions the club could move when the market reopens to try and secure a striker who would allow the Swede to manage his workload more moving forward.

According to Tuttosport on Wednesday (via PianetaMilan), Milan could sign a deputy to Ibrahimovic during the next window – with three options mentioned – but the chances of seeing the former Juventus striker Mandzukic at Milan are almost nil.

The Milan management have no made any phone calls to the agent of the Croatian centre-forward, who is currently a free agent after being released by Al-Duhail in Qatar.

Despite the fact he has Serie A experience as well as international experience and has won many trophies, he received a huge salary at his most recent club and therefore this seems to put him out of reach.
