Roma’s Edin Dzeko is the latest stopgap striker to be linked with a move to Manchester United.

The former Manchester City man is now apparently being considered as a transfer option for Manchester United in January.

The talk of Mario Mandzukic has cooled, with concerns over his fitness levels after being frozen out of the Juventus first-team entirely for so long.

The 33-year-old Bosnia international was recently offered the captaincy and committed his long term future to Roma.

But United thinks the idea of one last big deal could convince him to make the move back to Manchester only this time wearing red.

His Premier League experience is a big plus, and his record is not to bad either.

It is understood, that United still intends to make moves for Jadon Sancho and Erling Haaland.

However, the later may be loaned back to RB Salzburg until the end of the season, as United think that kind of option may give them the upper hand over other potential suitors.
