Manchester United target Douglas Costa this summer

Manchester United are reportedly in the hunt to sign Douglas Costa this summer. The Red Devils are looking up to improve their squad and they are preparing to spend a big amount of money in order to that to happen.

 

The Juventus winger, Douglas Costa has been linked with a move to Old Trafford in the past, but the transfer did not materialized anyway.


 


It was reported that even when Jose Mourinho was Manchester United manager he wanted to sign the pacy winger.

 

It is no secret that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer top priority for this summer is Borussia Dortmund winger, Jadon Sancho.

 

Sancho has been linked with a move to Old Trafford in the recent months, but his price is set too high from the Bundesliga team.


 

Manchester United weakest spot at this moment is the right-wing area. The Red Devils usually put Juan Mata and Mason Greenwood play as wingers, but this is not their preferred position.

 

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is in the hunt for a new addition to strengthen that weak spot and it was reported that if the Jadon Sancho transfer fell off, Douglas Costa is the next option.

 

Juventus are now willing to sell Douglas Costa as they are struggling financially and are looking for a way to raise funds for their own summer purchases.


 

The leaders in the Serie A table were not willing to sell the Brazilian, but now as it seems they need money as the worldwide health crisis caused series of problems for the teams.

 

Juventus have series of star names in the squad, including Cristiano Ronaldo and Paulo Dybala, and their wage budget is set very high and the lack of football is being felt.
