English Premier League club Man United have been working hard to complete a transfer deal but none is yet to breakthrough but reports claims talks with Juventus winger Douglas Costa still persist.

Douglas Costa seems to be surplus to requirement with the Italian Serie A outfit but he could be the chief cornerstone at the Old Trafford as the Red Devils are still in talks for his signature.

The Red Devils are believed to have been told a fee of £35 million for the Juventus winger and will have to agree on personal terms before sealing a move for the player who is out of favour at Turin.

Douglas Costa will be the alternative for Man United after they failed to land England international winger Jadon Sancho from German Bundesliga club, Borussia Dortmund as a result of the failure to negotiate the £100 million asking price.

With United set to dump the interest in the former Man City academy player, Douglas Costa will be a perfect fit and he is available for a cheaper price which will help the Red Devils to save for other deals.

The Red Devils are expected to pull a lot of strings in the coming weeks as they are yet to announce a major deal this summer transfer window.
