West Ham in for Mandzukic?
Mandzukic would feature in 33 of Juventus’ games across all competitions throughout 2018/19.
However, now that Maurizio Sarri is at the helm, Mandzukic looks set for a reduced role at Juve.
Juventus have played two Serie A ties so far this season. Mandzukic started both games on the bench and was an unused sub in both clashes.
It is now being reported that Mandzukic could be offered a January exit from the Turin-based club.
According to the Mirror, West Ham United are lining up a January swoop for the Croatian.
However, the report from the Mirror claims that West Ham may have concerns over Mandzukic’s age and, as a result, could try to sign him on loan:
Like United, West Ham are believed to have concerns over Mandzukic’s age, so will most likely try to sign him on loan rather than on a permanent deal.
Mandzukic’s current contract with Juventus is set to run until July of 2021.
