​Man Utd tell Mandzukic to decrease wage demands

Manchester United want to sign Mario Mandzukic from Juventus in January, but not at any price.

The Red Devils are on the lookout for an experienced striker who could add a physical presence and goals to the team midseason.

Mandzukic was a summer target, but the clubs could not agree on a fee late in the transfer window.

ESPNsays United want to sign the player, but they want to ensure the 33-year-old reduces his wage demands first.

Another report suggests United will offer Mandzukic £85,000-a-week, which is almost equivalent to his existing salary at the Italian club.

But the Croatian could be looking for a pay rise in what would be his final major contract as a footballer.
