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

With Romelu Lukaku in Milan for a medical at Inter after the Red Devils accepted a new £73m bid from the Serie A outfit, United could do with some more firepower.

And Sky in 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 as ‘the ideal replacement’ for Lukaku

Meanwhile, Spanish broadcaster El Chiringuito TV and Sky in 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.
