Manchester United were rebuffed in their quest to sign Juventus winger Douglas Costa during the winter transfer window but the Red Devils can still sign the player according to reports coming out of the media in Italy.
It’s no secret that Manchester United want to strengthen both the centre back and right wing positions ahead of the resumption of the transfer window in the summer.
Reports claimed that Manchester United made a €60m bid for Brazilian international star Douglas Costa after they had identified him as their number one target in the right wing position.
The big bid was rebuffed by Juventus who wanted to hold on to Douglas Costa until the summer at least.
Italian media outlet Tuttosport claim that there’s light at the end of the tunnel for Manchester United in their bid to sign Douglas Costa.
It was revealed that the Italians would be open to a sale if they can get Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba in exchange.
Manchester United consider French World Cup winner Paul Pogba as a big part of their future plans and that means the proposed swap deal won’t happen.
Paul Pogba spent four fruitful years at Juventus between 2012 and 2016 before Manchester United splashed £89m to sign him.
