This is what Mario Mandzukic must do to secure January move to Manchester United

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is set to be handed funds to improve his squad after a dismal start to the new season.

Manchester United are just two points above the relegation zone and the club is ready to back Solskjaer in the transfer market in January.

Solskjaer is reportedly keen for bodies in attack with Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood the only recognised strikers.

Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic has emerged as a target for the club in January.

Despite his interest in signing the Croatian striker, Solskjaer has reportedly set conditions for the transfer to happen.

According to ESPN, Mandzukic has been told he will have to lower his wage demands if he is to force through a move to Manchester United in January.

Following the experience with the signing of Alexis Sanchez, Manchester United are eager not be held to ransom over fees and wages.

Mandzukic wants first team football having failed to make a single appearance for Juventus this season.
