Douglas Costa

Since Cristiano Ronaldo made his sensational switch to the Turin outfits last month, some players have been feeling the heat and one of them is Brazilian star, Douglas Costa.

The winger was permanently bought by Juventus after his impressive showing for the club during the previous season, however, his days under Massimiliano Allegri is numbered as he’s not getting quality time on the field of play.

To make matters worse for the former Bayern Munich, Juventus hierarchy have decided to part way with him following his spitting incident in their clash with Sassuolo last week.

Reports are linking him with a move to Manchester United in the next transfer market.

Should Mourinho capture the player’s signature, how will the Portuguese manager get the best out him remains unseen.

Anthony Martial might be the sacrificial lamb for the player as Mourinho won’t love to have too many wingers on his team.

Costa has pace and his drilling skills make him the best player to occupy Mourinho’s either wings.

He could operate as a left winger or right-winger, depending on Mourinho’s preference.

Lukaku will benefit more from the Brazilian’s creativity at the wings because Costa would make many crosses into the 18-yard box for the Belgian to latch into opposition’s goal.
