The renowned media outlet have mentioned that the Dragons have admitted they need to make money before June 30th.

Therefore, the Red Devils can seal the deal this month and officially sign the player when the winter transfer window will open on July 1st.

CdM claim Porto do not want to sell their “most precious” asset at a bargain price and will demand activation of his £64.2m release clause.

It is reported that the amount of £64.2m does not scare the 20-time English champions, who are keen on signing Costa.

The news source have mentioned that Erik ten Hag is not pleased with David De Gea and intends to sign a new No.1 this summer.

The Dutch manager wants Diogo Costa, who also has the endorsement of the other two Portuguese stars at Old Trafford i.e. Bruno Fernandes and Diogo Dalot.

De Gea won the Golden Glove award in the last Premier League campaign but over the years, he has been inconsistent and it is evident that he is past his prime.

In your view, should Man Utd bid £64.2m to sign Diogo Costa?
