With no football to write about for the time being, the Italian newspapers have gone into overdrive with their transfer stories on Wednesday, and that includes Mario Mandzukić and Manchester United.
Earlier today, we covered a story from TuttoMercatoWeb relaying La Stampa, who reported that Fabio Paratici, Juventus’ director of football, had travelled to London where he would most likely conduct transfer business.
That’s why United and the Croatian striker were brought up, and Corriere dello Sport back this up by also reporting a possible meeting.
They recall how Ole Gunnar Solskjaer already wanted the veteran goalscorer towards the end of the summer, and all the problems Mandzukić has gone through since under Maurizio Sarri, clearly regretting his decision to fight for his spot in Turin as he’s yet to even feature for a minute this season.
It’s stated Paratici ‘will talk’ with Manchester United while on a ‘blitz’ in London, with the objective of Juventus walking away €10-15m richer and offloading an unwanted player in the process.
For next season, however, there’s a bit more hope, but we aren’t there yet and there’s no information regarding that in this article.
