Inter have rejected the chance to sign former Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic, according to an Italian media report today.
As per TuttoMercatoWeb, Inter were given the chance to sign the veteran Croatian forward, 34, who has been a free agent since leaving Qatari side Al-Duhail last summer, but said no.
Inter are widely reported to be on the lookout for a new striker capable of playing the role of back-up to current star striker Romelu Lukaku, who Inter very much struggle without when he is not on the pitch for whatever reason.
The Nerazzurri have also been linked with signing the likes of Jiangsu Suning’s Eder, free agent Graziano Pelle and Parma’s Gervinho among a whole host of other forwards.
Many reports have stated that Inter cannot make a move to bring in a new striker though until they are to offload both Christian Eriksen and young striker Andrea Pinamonti.
Mandzukic spent four and a half years at Juventus between 2015 and 2019, making 162 appearances and scoring 44 goals in all competitions.
