Man Utd will return to finally sign £65million star in January – Report

Diogo Costa - Portugal

Manchester United were linked with a number of goal keepers in the summer transfer window and one of them was Portugal international, Diogo Costa.

In the end, the Red Devils opted to sign Andre Onana from Inter Milan but the Cameroonian shot stopper has been highly inconsistent since completing the move.

In such a scenario, according to A Bola, Costa is once again on the radar at Old Trafford and Man Utd will return to sign him in January.

The Portuguese news source have mentioned that the GK position is still a concern for Erik ten Hag and the 20-time English champions will once again move for the 24-year-old.

The media outlet claim Man Utd may start negotiations to sign the player in winter and in response, Porto will demand the release clause to be met.

It is reported that United will have to meet the exit clause of 75 million euros (£65million) to get the signing done.

Costa has won major domestic titles with Porto, including two Liga Nos trophies, and is the No. 1 goal keeper for the national side. So far, he has earned 18 caps for the Seleccao and was part of their squad at the FIFA World Cup last year.

Onana had a brilliant last season with Inter Milan as he kept the highest number of clean sheets in the UEFA Champions League.

However, since moving to England, apart from the last couple of games, his performances have been average.

In your opinion, should Man Utd pay £65million to sign Diogo Costa in January or give Onana more time to settle?
