Manchester United cool their interest in Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic, according to a report.

Manchester United have reportedly cooled their pursuit of Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic.

The Red Devils continue to be credited with an interest in the 33-year-old, who has not played a single minute of football for the Italian champions since the start of the 2019-20 campaign.

Juve boss Maurizio Sarri recently revealed that the Croatian is not currently training with the Old Lady due to an agreement that he has with the club.

However, despite the ongoing speculation surrounding United, ESPN claim that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side are unlikely to sign the 2018 World Cup finalist during the January transfer window.

Mandzukic's wage demands and reluctance to pen a short-term deal are allegedly the two main reasons why the 20-time English champions do not view the forward as a priority at the start of 2020.

United reportedly have a kitty of £300m set aside for next summer's transfer window as the rebuild at Old Trafford looks set to continue.
