Man United could move to finally sign £36.6million attacker – Face competition

Juventus Dybala Rabiot Sandro Costa

Manchester United continue to be linked with wingers and once again the name of Douglas Costa is in the lime light.

Last month, Corriere dello Sport reported that the Red Devils moved in with an offer of 30 million euros for the Brazilian international but that bid was rejected by Juventus, who want 40 million euros from the sale of the attacker (£36.6million).

Transfer: Man Utd perhaps clear to secure signing of £50million ‘talented’ player – Report

Today, La Gazzetta Dello Sport published a story and stated that the Samba star is ready to leave the Old Lady, he has has his suitcase prepared for the next destination and he could end up agreeing a move to the Premier League.

The renowned Italian news source have mentioned that Man United are still interested in the 30-year-old winger but even Wolves have him on their radar.

The 31-capped international is a proven quality star who has won major prizes in Ukraine, Germany and Italy but he had an injury hit campaign last term and was not a regular starter under the management of Maurizio Sarri.

Costa only managed to start 7 games in the Serie A, provided 5 assists and scored just a single goal. The situation has not changed for the former Bayern Munich star even after the appointment of new manager i.e. club legend Andrea Pirlo.

GdS claim that the South American attacker earns a salary of 6 million euros annually, which is too high for a player who is mostly on the bench and that is why the Bianconceri are looking to sell him.

The Selecao star can play anywhere in the attacking third but mainly, he is a right winger, a position that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been trying but thus far failed to strengthen in this summer’s transfer window.

In your opinion, should Man United offer £36.6million to finally agree the signing of Douglas Costa?
