Man United Make £54m Bid For Sanchez Replacement

Three-time European champions Manchester United have made a big bid for an Italian Serie A winger and he could be the man to replace forward Alexis Sanchez at Old Trafford.

Caughtoffside claim that the Red Devils have made a stunning bid of around £54m for Brazilian international star Douglas Costa ahead of the January transfer window.

Douglas Costa plays his club football for Italian Serie A champions Juventus at the moment.

The Brazilian could replace fellow South American Alexis Sanchez at Manchester United.

Sanchez is said to be eyeing a move away from the club after just one year.

The Chilean has struggled for form since he signed for the Red Devils in a swap deal involving Armenian international player Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Arsenal.

He has scored just four goals in 30 appearances for Manchester United.

The former Barcelona and Udinese player has found the back of the net just once this season.

Douglas Costa has not been in blistering form for Juventus either with six goals scored since the start of last season.

He was initially on loan at the Juventus Stadium last season before the Old Lady made the temporary move permanent in the summer with a transfer fee of around €44m.
