Mourinho plots surprise striker signing for Manchester United

By Mark Peters IN Archive,General - 20:00 Feb 21st 2016

Manchester United sunk to new depths as they were beaten by Midtjylland on Thursday night, with the writing surely now on the wall for Louis van Gaal.

Jose Mourinho is expected to take over from the Dutchman at Old Trafford and the self-styled ‘Special One’ is thought to have a surprise striker signing in mind.

MARIO MANDZUKIC

Benni McCarthy, Didier Drogba, Emmanuel Adebayor and Diego Costa have all turned out for the Portuguese manager during his glittering career, so it is clear that he favours a physical presence in attack.

Mario Mandzukic would certainly provide that, though the record of the Croatia international during his two-season stay at Bayern Munich proves that there is far more to his game than just exceptional hold-up play:

In fact, the 29-year-old scored 33 goals in just 54 Bundesliga appearances during his time in Bavaria, prompting subsequent moves to Atletico Madrid and then Juventus.

At both of those clubs, the powerful striker has averaged a goal roughly once every two top-flight starts, whilst his record this season is comparable to that of Wayne Rooney, despite the fact that he has spent far less time on the pitch than the Manchester United man:
