Manchester United have ‘cooled their interest’ in Mario Mandzukic ahead of the January transfer window as the club won’t panic after poor start.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to bolster his attacking line after the departures of Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez to Inter Milan over the summer.
United have struggled to win this season with just two victories to their name and just nine goals scored in the opening eight games.
And, according to ESPN , a January move for the Croatian international is ‘considered unlikely’ by the club, with Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial to continue to be the Red Devils’ main options upfront.
33-year-old Mandzukic is surplus to requirements at Italian giants Juventus and United have put off by his wage demands and reluctance to sign a short term deal with the club.
According to the same report, interest remains in the striker, but he is not a priority.
