EPL: Man United moving in on Juventus star

English Premier League outfit, Man United are reportedly ready to sign Juventus forward Douglas Costa this summer transfer window, according to Gianluca DiMarzio.

Douglas Costa has been on the radar of the Red Devils for many years but he has not been available for a deal and now could be the time for Man United to get their long-term wish.

Since the arrival of a world football player, Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid, the 29-year-old has fallen down the pecking order at Turin and that is a factor to be considered as he is already at the peak of his career.

Douglas Costa scored just three goals in 29 appearances for the Serie A champions this season but that is not enough for a player of his profile.

It is reported that the Old Lady is ready to let him go despite having a contract with him until 2020 but that will not happen if they do not have a good offer for a fee.

Man United are left disappointed in their chase of England international winger, Jadon Sancho as they are not considered for a fee reduction by the German Bundesliga outfit, Borussia Dortmund, the reason why the deal is reported to have crashed.
