PSG aren’t wasting any time to replace injured strikers.
Paris Saint-Germain have turned to Manchester United target and Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic to help solve their attacking issues.
The French side attacking duo of Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani picked up respective injuries during their side’s 4-0 win over Toulouse in Ligue 1 which have ruled them out for at least two league matches. With Neymar on his way back to Spain as well, Paris Saint-Germain find themselves in a out-of-the-ordinary situation.
As a result, they have turned their attention towards Juventus to help them come out of the tricky situation. According to reports by Sky Italia‘s journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, Paris Saint-Germain have approached Mandzukic with an offer to move to Paris.
The report states that the French champions have opened talks with Juventus and that the 33-year-old is currently studying the offer and will make a decision on it sooner rather than later. With only four days left in the summer transfer window, both the parties will have to act fast if they need to close out a deal before the transfer deadline day.
Mandzukic came close to joining Manchester United at the start of August, but a transfer ultimately failed to materialise before the English window slammed shut.
The Croatia international was left on the bench as the Bianconeri opened their account for the new Serie A season with a 1-0 win at Parma on Saturday, fueling rumors of his imminent exit. Thomas Tuchel could certainly use some extra reinforcements up front and Mandzukic would be an excellent late addition to his squad, but it remains to be seen whether or not he will agree to the move.
