Tuttosport says Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea all face stiff competition from Italian heavyweights Juventus for Mandzukic.

Bayern have placed a £25 million price tag on Mandzukic.

With Javier Hernandez tipped to leave Old Trafford in the summer, Mandzukic could prove to be an excellent back-up striker.
