English Premier League club Man United might be set for another major transfer blow as their bid to sign Italian Serie A outfit Juventus star Douglas Costa is already being threatened.

The Red Devils manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a big fan of the Juventus star and has identified him as an alternative to Jadon Sancho, with claims that a bid is being prepared to be submitted to the Old Lady.

Now the latest report claims that talks have been established between Juventus and Spanish La Liga outfit Atletico Madrid for a swap deal with Douglas and Alvaro Morata.

It is claimed that Atletico Madrid are keen on the signature of Douglas Costa and have started negotiating a possible deal with Alvaro Morata being mentioned to be able to strike a deal.

The report claims that Alvaro Morata will not mind returning to Turin to join Juventus as he has a couple of friends in the team and the city and that could play a role in making a decision.

CNN journalist Tancredi Palmeri has revealed that Alvaro Morata was only mentioned in and not a major discussion in the negotiation for Douglas Cost but a loan move can be possible for the two players.
