Douglas Costa and Alex Sandro have been linked with Manchester United for several years and the Juventus duo are again targets for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, claims Calciomercato.

According to the report, the Red Devils’ interest in the winger is ‘becoming more and more concrete’.

The former Bayern Munich man struggled with injuries and form last season, and this, along with a few issues off the pitch, has convinced the Turin club to make him available in the market.

Despite any issues at Juve, Costa continues to arouse interest ‘at an international level’. There’s belief he can be an ‘indisputable talent’, even for clubs like United who are not having ‘any cash problems’.

It’s claimed the Old Lady no longer want to pay his €6m per year salary, which is why they are looking to cut ties with the Brazilian.

Calciomercato then state: ‘Between a request for at least €40m and a first proposal close to €30m, it appears only a question of will on the part of the English club, and the player.’

Sandro’s situation in Italy is slightly different to that of his compatriot. He has been a regular for Juve, but the website explains the left-back is not considered ‘irreplaceable’. The 29-year-old still has a market, and he’s back in United’s sights.

It’s claimed signs coming from Manchester indicate ‘great interest’ from United in Sandro. Juve have set a minimum asking price of €40m.

The report’s headline states ‘United’s double offer for Costa and Sandro’, but the Old Trafford club making a double bid for the two players is not backed up within the report.

It doesn’t make sense for United to spend €40m each on Costa and Sandro, mainly because of their age and drop in performances last season. Sandro turned 29 at the start of this year, while Costa will be 30 next month.
