Manchester United are weighing up a move to sign Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic in the January transfer window, according to a report in England.

Website Goal is reporting that the Red Devils are contemplating whether to make an offer to sign the Croatia international in the upcoming transfer window.

The same article states that Manchester United were interested in a deal in the summer but the 20-time English champions were unable to reach an agreement with Juventus and Mandzukic.

According to the same story, Solskjaer wants reinforcements up front after Manchester United forwards Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial both suffered injury setbacks.

Goal go on to suggest that Mandzukic could be open to a move to Old Trafford after falling down the pecking order under new Juventus manager Maurizio Sarri this season.

Manchester United are struggling to score goals after the Red Devils decided to sell Romelu Lukaku to Serie A giants Inter Milan in the summer transfer window.

Alexis Sanchez left the club after he agreed to move to Inter on loan, leaving Solskjaer reliant on Rashford, Martial and Mason Greenwood to lead his attack this season.

The Red Devils are looking to challenge for a top-four finish this season to secure a return to the Champions League for next season.
