Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ‘Made Deadline Day Phone Call’ To Man Utd Target Before Transfer Collapsed

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reportedly make a desperate last-ditch phone call to Juventus forward Mario Mandzukic on deadline day.

The Croatian was linked with a switch to Old Trafford during the summer as United searched for a replacement for Romelu Lukaku.

And Tuttosport report that Solskjaer made a personal effort to contact Mandzukic over a move, but failed in his approach.

The 33-year-old striker is said to have delayed his decision in order to see whether he had been included in Juve’s Champions League squad.

But he was not part of boss Maurizio Sarri’s plans, and Mandzukic – who was said to have offers on the table from PSG and Bayern, as well as United – now looks set for a move to Qatar.

Qatari side Al-Gharafa are the rumoured front runners for Mandzukic’s signature, with his agent allegedly due to land in Qatar on Monday to finalise transfer negotiations.

United failed to bring in any further attacking reinforcements following Lukaku’s departure, and have since also lost Alexis Sanchez to Inter Milan as well.

The Red Devils have been linked with a move for Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson next summer, while Solskjaer ruled out a move for veteran Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

“If he [Ibrahimovic] was 28, not 38 next month, it would be a big difference,” Solskjaer said.

“He had a great time here and he is still doing well. He was unfortunate he got his injury here when he did.

“Who knows? He knows my number.

“He never rented my house but he was looking at it, and we can speak our native language. If he is serious I’ll always talk to Zlatan.”

The leader of Al-Qaeda’s north Africa affiliate in the Islamic Maghreb has been killed in a French military operation following a seven-year hunt.

Abdelmalek Droukdel and members of his inner circle of the terrorist group were killed on Wednesday during an operation in Mali, where thousands of French troops have been deployed to battle the jihadist groups in the area.

French Defence Minister, Florence Parly made the announcement on Twitter last night.

She also confirmed that a senior Islamic State (IS) group commander, Mohamed el Mrabat was also captured in an operation back in May

“On June 3, French army forces with the support of their local partners, killed al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb’s emir, Abdelmalek Droukdel, and several of his closest collaborators, during an operation in northern Mali,”

A senior Islamic State (IS) group commander was also captured in an operation in May, Parly said.

“Our forces, in cooperation with their local partners … will continue to track these (people) down without respite,” she added.

Droukdel was believed to be hiding in the mountains of northern Algeria.

The AQIM group who have made millions of dollars abducting foreigners for ransom over the years operates across northern Mali, Niger, Mauritania, and Algeria.

According to the UN, Droukdel was an explosives expert and manufactured devices that killed hundreds of civilians in attacks on public places. He was sentenced to death in Algeria in 2013 for his involvement in the bombings of a government building and offices of the UN’s refugee committee in Algiers that killed 26 people and wounded 177.
