EPL: Man United get serious with this Sancho alternative


English Premier League club Man United have been told that they will no longer land the signature of Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho this summer window which makes an option inevitable.

A fee of £100 million has not been agreed upon for the player with Man United not meeting the deadline of completing the deal. They will now have to wait for subsequent transfer windows to try again.

However, the Red Devils are reported to be getting serious with the search for an alternative for Jadon Sancho as they have identified Juventus star Douglas Costa as an option.

MEN Sport reports that Douglas Costa was identified for Man United by their former manager Jose Mourinho and they are now set to make it formal by submitting an offer for him.

The 29-year-old will also not mind leaving Turin this summer window because of the lack of playing time under the sacked manager, Maurizio Sarri. He was handed only seven games in Serie A during the just-concluded season where he scored one and gave four assists.

The Brazilian has been seen as the man with the great potential to make a mark at the Old Trafford and an offer is currently being prepared for him.
