Premier League giant Manchester United have been handed major boost with the reports that Italian Serie A giants Juventus are keen to offloading South American superstar Douglas Costa this coming summer, having been linked with the Old Trafford outfit.
As cited by Manchester Evening News last month, the Juventus ace has been linke with a transfer to Manchester United, and even sparked more claims with his activities on social media.
It comes despite the fact that the player is currently having an underwhelming season thus far, scoring a goal and creating two assists in 24 games in all competitions.
Notwithstanding, Costa, 28, remains a top quality footballer with his incredible movement, speed and an eye for goal, and he certainly brings to the table a unique dynamic when juxtaposed to most other forwards in the game.
According to Italian outfit Calciomercato, the Old Lady are prepared to listen to formal bids for Costa this summer window, especially if they attain the €50 million asking price.
Considering Costa’s valuation, questions are raised as to whether or not signing him would be a sensible investment from the Red Devils.
Also, head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer already has top rated players like Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata, Alexis Sanchez, and Romelu Lukaku at his disposal in United attack.
In turn, bringing in a player like him will surely result in some attackers being sold first to provide space and financial flexibility in the team, and so only time will tell if or not there is a shake-up upfront at Old Trafford.
