Man United facing battle with Juventus to sign 26-year-old winger – report
Manchester United and Juventus are both interested in signing Douglas Costa from Bayern Munich this summer, say reports
Manchester United are set for a summer transfer wrangle with Juventus for the signature of Bayern Munich winger Douglas Costa, according to reports in Italy.
Italian outlet Tuttosport, as quoted by the Sun, is reporting that both the Red Devils and the Serie A side are interested in signing the Brazilian in the forthcoming summer transfer window.
The same report states that Costa has become frustrated by his lack of playing time at the Allianz Arena this season.
Costa has been limited to just 14 starts in the Bundesliga for Bayern this season, but has still managed to score four goals and made three assists.
Manchester United are bound to be linked with a host of players in the coming weeks and months as Jose Mourinho looks to bolster his squad ahead of his second season in charge at Old Trafford.
The Portuguese coach will be out to assemble a team capable of launching a Premier League title bid next season after their disappointing sixth-placed finish this term.
