Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer eyes swoop for 22-year-old winger and seasoned striker


Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is aiming to add some extra firepower to his squad in January, according to reports.

The Norwegian boss is beneath escalating stress following the Red Devils’ stuttering commence to the season which sees them sit on eight points following six matches.

In the final 5 matches – considering the fact that an opening day four- win more than Chelsea – his side has hit the back of the net just 4 instances in 5 matches.

And following drawing a blank in Sunday’s two- defeat at West Ham United, the Independent report that the United chief is eyeing a double swoop for Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele and Juventus’ Mario Mandzukic.

Dembele has scored 18 instances in 66 matches for Barca.

Dembele, 22, has struggled to settle at the Camp Nou considering the fact that his massive £135.5million transfer from Borussia Dortmund in 2017.

It is claimed the Catalan club are prepared to sell but that they would want a charge in excess of £100million.

Meanwhile, Mandzukic was believed to be a target in the summer time just before they decided against generating a move.

Nevertheless, with the sale of Romelu Lukaku leaving Solskjaer with just Marcus Rashford, the presently injured Anthony Martial and 17-year-old Mason Greenwood as his only out-and-out striker, it is reported they will reignite their interest in the 33-year-old.

Mandzukic played 89 instances for his nation, scoring 33 ambitions.

It is believed that the former Croatia international, who has scored 44 ambitions in 162 matches for Juventus, would be recruited as a back-up centre-forward.
