Mario Mandzukic Agrees Personal Terms With Manchester United In Reported £6.2m-A-Year Deal

Manchester United are reportedly closing in on the signing of Mario Mandzukic from Juventus.

The 33-year-old has agreed personal terms with the club, according to The Daily Mail, who claim the striker will sign a three year deal at Old Trafford worth £6.2 million a year.

Mandzukic, who has scored 188 goals in 476 games during his career, is believed to be Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's ideal replacement for Romelu Lukaku.

Of course, Lukaku is part of the ongoing transfer saga involving Paulo Dybala but it is believed that even if that deal falls through, United will still try and sign the Croatian forward, according to Sky Italy.

The Mail also report that United will either pay in the region of £15 million for Mandzukic, or Juventus may incorporate him in the swap deal for Lukaku.

Earlier this week, Paulo Dybala's agent travelled to London to hold talks with Manchester United over personal terms.

It was later reported that Manchester United and Juventus had agreed a swap deal 'in principle' involving Dybala and Romelu Lukaku.

But it appears both clubs are now waiting on Dybala's final decision.
