This week, a couple of reports from the Italian press suggested Manchester United were keen on Douglas Costa and Federico Bernardeschi.
The Juventus duo are among those the Serie A outfit would be willing to let go this transfer market, but only for the right price.Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was understood to appreciate both profiles and Corriere dello Sport even went as far as saying his side had made a €30 million offer for the South American.
They echo that, following in La Gazzetta dello Sport’s footsteps in saying the Norwegian boss has inserted Costa’s name on the list of stars he wants to bring in following the semi-final exit in the UEFA Europa League.
Juventus are asking for at least €40 million for the winger, and it’s reiterated the first bid of €30 million wasn’t enough.€40 million is the same price they’d be looking for in case of a Federico exit, and it’s said an ‘interesting offer’ would make Binconeri consider his sale.
On top of that, there is a third player in Turin that does not displease Solskjaer in the shape of Aaron Ramsey.
He would cost some money and would likely improve the Red Devils’ midfield, which still needs a bit of work here and there.
In other news, Manchester City are allegedly ahead of Manchester United in the race to land Aston Villa playmaker Jack Grealish.
Having helped keep his boyhood club in the top-flight, Grealish is being heavily linked with a move to a bigger club.
Despite their interest in Borussia Dortmund attacker Jadon Sancho, United have been frequently mentioned with an approach for the 24-year-old.
However, according to The Athletic, the Citizens have shown more interest in Jack than their fierce rivals.
