Reports: Man Utd Agree Deal With January Signing

Struggling Premier League giants Manchester United have reportedly reached an agreement with their first signing for the January transfer window.

Read: Managers Who Could Replace Solskjaer At Man Utd

The Red Devils have dropped to 12th position in the league after their shock defeat to Newcastle United last weekend, which has left them just two points above the relegation spots.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's future at the club seems to be in doubt with his side having won just three of their 11 games in the 2019/20 campaign, while also progressing to the Carabao Cup's round of 16 only after defeating League One side Rochdale on penalties.

Apart from their 4-0 opening day victory over Chelsea, United have not scored more than once in their past 10 games across all competitions, and have failed to hit the back of the net in three of their past five matches.

As a consequence, United are said to be ready to dive into the January transfer market, and have reportedly reached a verbal agreement with out-of-favour Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic, according to Tuttosport.

Click through the gallery below to see eight players who are linked with United, and five Red Devils stars who could be sold:

The 33-year-old has fallen down the pecking order at the Serie A giants, and coach Maurizio Sarri did not include him in his side's UEFA Champions League squad.

He was heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford during the most recent window, but the move did not materialise.

However, the Croatia forward is understood to have now agreed terms for a January move, and even rejected a lucrative offer worth £7 million (R129 million) a year from Qatari side Al-Rayyan.

According to Tuttosport, Mandzukic's camp has an agreement with United, and he will join the Premier League side on 1 January.

The Croatian, who has scored 44 goals and assisted another 24 strikes in 162 appearances for Juve, is contracted to the Italians until 30 June 2021, but the reigning Serie A champions are understood to be prepared to let him go for free in order to get him off their wage bill.
