AC Milan will reportedly rival Manchester United in their pursuit of Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic in the January transfer window.

Mandzukic has been considered surplus to requirements in Turin under new boss Maurizio Sarri, who has not handed the Croat a single appearance so far this term.

Reports have claimed that United had struck an agreement in principle with the Old Lady regarding the transfer of Mandzukic, who came close to moving to Old Trafford over the summer.

According to Tuttosport, the Rossoneri plan to launch a bid of their own for the 33-year-old striker when the January window opens.

Mandzukic has been identified as a key target for United in January amid a marked lack of experience in the club's attack following the departures of Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku.

Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici recently made it clear that Mandzukic was free to speak with other clubs about a January transfer.

Man Utd ace Matic helps name football pitch after favourite boss Jose Mourinho leaving ex-Chelsea manager ‘delighted’

NEMANJA MATIC phoned Jose Mourinho to organise having a pitch named after him in Serbia.

The Portuguese manager, 56, has remained on good terms with the midfielder after he signed him for both Chelsea and Manchester United.

The ground is located in a small town called Ub in the Kolubara district of western Serbia and will be used by local club FK Jedinstvo.

Local media report that the idea of naming it after Mourinho was inspired by the mutual respect him and Serbian footballers.

Former Chelsea midfielder Matic, 31, played an important role as he was the one to contract Mourinho.

Despite reportedly being delighted with the news, Mourinho is not expected to attend the opening ceremony next month but reportedly does plan to visit the pitch in the future.

It has state-of-the-art artificial turf and floodlights, with a capacity of 500 seats.

However some renovation work is still being carried out and a football museum is reportedly in the works.

The pitch is located near a street named after Manchester United star Matic, a park named after former Blackburn Rovers winger Radosav Petrovic and a stadium named after Serbian legend Dragan Dzajic.

The opening ceremony of the pitch is set for some time next month however the exact date is unclear.

Mourinho - who has sparked rumours his marriage is over by ditching his wedding ring - has not managed a team since he was sacked by Manchester United in December 2018.

He was most recently tipped to take over at Arsenal after being linked to the likes of Borussia Dortmund, Real Madrid and Sporting Lisbon.

Liverpool boss Klopp’s wife talked him out of joining Man Utd – telling him it would be a ‘bad idea’

JURGEN KLOPP'S wife urged him not to take over Manchester United before while he was still at Borussia Dortmund.

The German tactician, 52, ended up joining the Reds instead and has already led them to the Champions League title.

And as he bids to bring a first-ever Premier League trophy to Anfield, ex-Liverpool defender Phil Thompson has revealed the part wife Ulla Sandrock played.

He told Denmark's TV2: "I interviewed Klopp for Sky, and I asked if he and Liverpool were created for each other. He looked at me and asked 'Why?'

"Then Klopp told me he could have taken over Manchester United, but his wife said it wasn't right.

"When Liverpool arrived, his wife said it was right. There is something strange there. It is as if he's created for Liverpool."

Liverpool are eight points clear of second-placed Leicester and Thompson thinks they are on course to break their top-flight drought.

He added: "In my time we always lost three to four games [at this stage of the season], but this team leads by nine points and lost only one game last season.

"This season they have beaten everyone, except for a draw at Old Trafford. They are doing something great."

Liverpool's win over Manchester City spilled over into international duty as Joe Gomez and Raheem Sterling clashed in the canteen.

But the duo were all smiles as they returned to training today with the incident seemingly behind them.
