Fernando Llorente, who was out of contact at Tottenham, was another player offered to United but they opted not to pursue him, and the Spaniard ended up signing for Napoli, where he has impressed with three goals so far this term.
"You don't have to be a rocket scientist to know it's a forward we're going to try to recruit next time," Solskjaer said. "We're looking for some creativity and goals, but they [potential signings] have to be the right one.
Mandzukic has not played for new Bianconeri boss Maurizio Sarri so far this season and was not included in his Champions League squad either.
