Juventus and Brazil winger Douglas Costa has four appearances for club and country since the start of this season and his form over a longer period has not gone unnoticed.
According to Calciomercato.it, ‘first and foremost’, Manchester United are looking at Paulo Dybala and the Argentine is not the only player from the Serie A winners that is attracting Red Devils’ interest.
The Old Trafford club could make an approach for Costa and send a ‘cheque close to €100m’ for the wideman, and Max Allegri’s side have anticipated receiving a ‘monster’ offer from the 20-time English champions.
It’s claimed the idea to sign the formal Bayern Munich man is real and United are not the only Premier League club interested in the player, as Manchester City are ready to rival their neighbours for the South American.
Costa is considered one of the vital members of Juventus’ squad for present and the future and only a ‘off-market’ proposal would convince the Italian outfit to consider the sale of their player.
These are nice claims for Manchester United ears, but that of course doesn’t make them true.
