Mario Mandzukic. we are really pushing the boat out aren't we. What a joke, we let 26 year old prolific goal scorer leave and bag 73 million pounds and replace him with a 33 year old Croatian who managed 9 goals all season in a crap league. Wonderful business!

Have you ever seen him play? He would be a really good signing, presses extremely well from the front, would be happy to be a back up and wouldn’t cost a fortune. I know it’s the cool thing to just slag everything off the club does seemingly, but if you don’t know much about the player maybe ask instead of googling goal stats and talking nonsense.

He will suit our tactics a different option to martial and rashy.
If signed I think he can be a shrewd signing.

GDS2.I watch Italian football all time. Just because you think he's a good signing then everybody else has to agree? It's a pathetic signing, a last ditch buy because we have left it to late yet again. It's poor by United again, they knew the Lukaku signing was going to go through and they should of had something in place. Are you telling me that the plan was always to buy Mario Mandzukic. I think not.

08 Aug 2019 11:00:51
Be a good signing as the two above have said. Something different and can head the ball unlike the current strikers!

Stop acting like a saint. Is Mandzukic young and hungry like you guys have been buzzing about? Will he push us to title? Is signing him building united team for long term? The way you and other fans are getting less ambitious is depressing. Just keep on wishing for us to get in CL like average club.

We addressed defense after years and you seem to be happy with it. I guess if we strengthen our midfield after 5 years, it will be enough for you to be satisfied.

There are problems in the team and don't act like we dont.

Although, I would be against the idea of Mandzukic because of his age, I wouldn't mind him as backup as GDS2 suggests provided we don't overspend.

At this moment with Lukaku seemingly leaving for Inter, we need goals from somewhere if our front line does misfire and Mandzukic would be a safe bet, even though if it is a short fix. It could end up being a shrewd signing and probably get us back into top 4. The most important signing however would be getting in a CM before the deadline.

What would be interesting is if Ole would really want him as it would be against his policy of getting in young, hungry players.

I agree, if he signs, he will be a very good signing. I have seen him play and still at this age, he is quite a handful for opposition defenders. Someone who has that thing to always get the better off defenders.

08 Aug 2019 11:12:49
He played and scored in a world cup final last year. He's going to be a very good player to have in our squad. Works very hard, is a threat in the box, and has a wealth of experience for the young lads in the squad to learn from. I'd be very happy with the signing.

08 Aug 2019 11:13:30
Gds2 have you watched him, he is 6'3 good. If you get the ball on his head, have we got wingers who can cross the ball, no.
He is 33, another player to play with matic and mata, I've seen him play another average Joe, last season he was on the decline.

08 Aug 2019 11:01:03
He’d be a fantastic signing.

Everyone here championing our youth players and moaning about a Dybala-type player blocking the rise of Greenwood, Gomes etc. should be ecstatic with Mandzukic - hard working, model professional who has probably got 2 years left in him where he can show our youngsters how to be model professional attacking footballers.

Sign him up!

08 Aug 2019 11:23:44
:33 yes, cracking experience, big game player, good signing.

Don’t think we will get him mind.

08 Aug 2019 11:26:22
Been playing a lot of footy on the left side of midfield for juve not really as a striker.
Surprised no one as mentioned this considering how much they watch him.

08 Aug 2019 11:29:20
Mario Mandzukic is the way forward? Are you kidding?!

08 Aug 2019 11:31:57
The whole point of Ole coming in was to buy young hungry players that want to play for the club. This guy is 33 years old. Who knows how much we are going to pay him, probably over a 100 thousand pounds a week. It stinks of a last ditch bid to get somebody in.

08 Aug 2019 11:33:37
I can understand the reasons of some not wanting Mandzukic especially because of his age, but he is not going to be first choice, only a backup and if we can get him for a fair price it would suit all parties. Last season, he scored 10 and assisted 6 in 33 games in all competitions.

I don't think anyone is going to whine if Ole decides to trust the likes of Rashford/ Martial/ Greenwood/ Gomes to come up with the goals and not go ahead with signing Mandzukic.

08 Aug 2019 14:01:57
About to say the same Jred. i've seen him on the left most of the time for Juve. They say he worked harder than any other winger there and the distance he covered for his age was astonishing.
For 15 mill we have a proven striker, who won't mind sitting in the bench and who can pass on some experience to the younger lads. Reminds me of a Henrik Larsson kind if signing.
