According to a new report from the oftentimes reliable Sky Sports, Manchester United are keen on a move for Douglas Costa.
The 29-year-old Brazil international is thought to be on his way out of Juventus this summer, with the Old Lady open to using him as part of a swap deal if an opportunity arises. There was talk a week ago that Costa could be offered to Arsenal in return for Alexandre Lacazette, so this is something that Manchester United will be wary of.
Costa’s career may have taken a turn for the worse in recent seasons, but the talent will always be there. He just needs the right manager and motivation to unlock the ability that we all know is there. He is a rapid winger that has an abundance of skill and technical ability; this is not lost, not with age and not with anything.
Costa has plenty of Champions League experience with the Juve and Bayern Munich. The one problem is that he tends to be injury-prone and, of course, he is not young like Jadon Sancho is. Still, he is a great alternative to have.
