The latest developments from Juventus show that Mauricio Sarri’s army is trying to liquidate striker Mario Mandzukic and midfielder between Emre Can.
This is no more happy news for MU when having the opportunity to own 2 world-class stars at a very good price right at the beginning of the new year.
Although not injured, the striker who won the World Cup runner-up 2018 with Croatia has not played any match this season when the “Bianconeri” has gone through 7 rounds in Serie A and 2 matches in the Champions League.
In the context of Mandzukic being contacted by MU and rumored to leave Juve in the January 2020 transfer period, remarkable new information related to this striker has just been revealed.
Speaking at a pre-match press conference before Juve’s match against Bologna in Round 8 of Serie A, coach Sarri said: “Mandzukic will not train with us according to the agreement with the club. If the agreement changes, I always open to everything.”
Juventus’ isolation of Mandzukic made former Bayern Munich striker “at home” to play instead of going to the training ground with teammates was also confirmed by the “Old Lady of Turin” on the club’s official Twitter account. with the message:
“Mandzukic at home: Not only does he not practice but he does not participate in video meetings and tactical technical discussions with Sarri and the coaching staff. He is still at Continassa (Juve’s training center) but will never be able to participate in activities with his teammates, everything has received the agreement from the club.”
Also according to Tuttosport (Italy), the previous coach also led Juve – Max Allegri is approaching the agreement to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to lead MU with a £ 6.5 million contract. The 52-year-old Italian strategist has a very good relationship with his former student Mandzukic since he joined the “Old Lady of Turin” in 2015 for 19 million euros (£ 16.38 million).
Sharing in an interview from Przeglad Sportowy (Poland), Allegri also gave many words to the striker wearing the number 17 shirt in Juve disgrace:
“Mandzukic is a special player for me. He gave the club dressing room great things. It’s a great football player. He changes his clubs regularly. , so he can face difficulties. But he has stayed at Juventus for the past 5 years. This is one of my greatest successful contracts (when leading this club)”.
Mandzukic is one of the desired transfer goals in the upcoming winter transfer period of MU, alongside Moussa Dembele (Lyon), Saul Niguez (Atletico Madrid) and James Maddison (Leicester City).
Mandzukic’s teammates at Juve, Emre Can are also in the sights of the Red Man. Tuttosport newspaper of Italy on Thursday (17/10) reported on the German midfielder wants to leave Juve with a priority destination is MU.
Despite being the preferred choice of coach Max Allegri last season, this season, the former Liverpool midfielder was suddenly cheated by Maurizio Sarri. It can have only been used three times in Serie A (both from the bench) and was not even named on the list of Champions League group stage.
Also according to Sky Sports, if really determined to have Can, MU will pay Juve about 35 million pounds. This is a pretty reasonable number for the talent of the German international, who is still young and talented and experienced after 4 seasons playing for Liverpool.
