Juventus winger Douglas Costa has talked up the possibility of moving to the Premier League amidst recent reports linking him with three-time European champions Manchester United.

In his recent interview as monitored by popular media portal Goal, the Brazilian international found a move to the Premier League appealing.

Douglas Costa has not been able to nail down a starting berth in a star-studded forward line at Juventus since his permanent move to Turin.

The former Shakhtar Donetsk player has to fight for a forward slot at Juventus with the likes of Federico Bernardeschi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Moise Kean, Paolo Dybala and Mario Mandzukic.

Douglas Costa initially joined Juventus on a season-long loan at the start of the 2017/18 season before his loan spell was converted to a permanent deal for around €44m after his impressive performances for the Old Lady during his loan spell.

Since his transfer was made permanent, Douglas Costa has not been able to live up to the form shown during his loan spell with the same club.

The 28-year-old was linked with the Red Devils during the winter in a reported €60m bid, but the transfer didn’t materialise.

Manchester United are known admirers of the talented winger and they are the obvious choice if he decides to move to the Premier League.
