Man United lodge bit for Douglas Costa

The Italian media report Manchester United have made a £54 million offer for Juventus winger Douglas Costa.

The Brazilian had already been linked with a move to Old Trafford in the past and it seems that the Manchester United officials have reignited their interest. Rai Sport suggests Red Devils have already approached Juventus with a bid to get the Brazilian this winter.

Costa made 13 Serie A appearances for Juventus this season and is far from being considered a first-team regular in Turin. The Brazilian has yet to score a goal for Bianconeri this term and is believed to be considering his future in Italy.

The flamboyant Brazilian first broke onto the scene at Shakhtar Donetsk before moving to Bayern Munich in 2016. The 28-year-old spent two years in Munich where his attitude was question on several occasions.

Juventus would be potentially open to selling the Brazilian but it is believed they would be looking for a fee closer to £70 million.
