Man Utd looking to wrap up £96m double Deadline Day swoop

Manchester United have reportedly reopened talks with Juventus over a possible deal to bring Mario Mandzukic to Old Trafford, while they also remain interested in Athletic Bilbao forward Inaki Williams.

With Romelu Lukaku in Milan for a medical at Inter after the Red Devils accepted a new £73m bid from the Serie A giants, United are in need for some fresh firepower.

And Sky Italy are claiming that United ‘back in talks to sign’ Mandzukic as a replacement for Lukaku after a deal for Paulo Dybala fell through earlier in the week.

A previous report in the Daily Mail said that a deal for Mandzukic would set United back £15m and that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sees the Croatian hitman as ‘the ideal replacement’ for Lukaku

Meanwhile, Spanish broadcaster El Chiringuito TV and Sky Italy claim that Bilbao forward Williams is also being lined up by the Red Devils.

Williams has an £81m release clause in his contract at the Spanish club and United would have to pay that to tempt Bilbao to sell.

The Spanish forward has previously been linked with a number of high-profile clubs, including United’s arch-rivals Liverpool.
