Manchester United have been heavily linked with Mario Mandzukic for quite some time and the latest reports seem very positive for the Red Devils.
Earlier this month, renowned Italian outlet, Tutto Sport, revealed that the Old Trafford club have a verbal agreement to hire the services of the Croatian international in the winter transfer window.

Now, as per an exclusive story covered by The Sun, the Juventus striker is ready to slash his £300,000-a-week wage demands and will now take around £150,000-a-week (£7.8million-a-year) to secure Man Utd move.
The 33-year-old goal-scorer played 33 games for The Old Lady in the last campaign but things have changed under new boss Maurizio Sarri.
So far, he has not made a single appearance in the current season and the former Chelsea manager has recently confirmed that the forward is not even training with the Bianconeri (The Mail).
The veteran star has won all the major prizes in Germany and Italy and he featured 89 times for the senior national side before retiring after the World Cup 2018.
Mandzukic has got the quality and experience that Manchester United lack in their strike-force at the moment but signing him in January is going to be a short term fix.
In the summer transfer window, Man Utd should lure a proven quality goal-scorer, who would be able to serve the club in the long run. As per recent reports, the 20-time English champions are linked with German international and Leipzig striker Timo Werner (The Express).
