The renowned Portuguese news source have mentioned the Old Trafford outfit are looking to replace De Gea. On the other hand, the Rojiblancos want Costa to replace Oblak.

Manchester United have been linked with Oblak as well but CdM claim the Slovenian international, who earns around £168k-a-week (Sport), would leave the Colchoneros to join Spurs.

Costa was a key member of the Porto squad that won the Liga Nos title in the last campaign and he is now a regularly starter for Portugal ahead of Euro 2016 winner, Rui Patricio, who currently plays for Roma.

Last night, the 23-year-old goalie brilliantly saved Patrick Schick’s penalty kick, kept a clean sheet and helped the Dragons earn all three points against Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League.

Correio da Manha state Porto know they have a diamond at their hands and hope to make a huge amount of money from his sale.

It is reported that the Portuguese giants believe the £52.4milllion release clause in the Seleccao star’s contract should be activated and it is likely that he will not be at the club next season.

In your view, should Man Utd pay £52.4milllion to sign Diogo Costa in order to replace De Gea?
