Douglas Costa offered by Juventus in a swap deal for Paul Pogba

Manchester United have been offered Juventus star Douglas Costa in exchange for Paul Pogba, according to the Sun.

The French World cup man expressed his desire to look out for new challenges away from Old Trafford next season, with Bianconeri and Real Madrid turning out to be his potential suitors.

Elsewhere, the Serie A giants want to bring back their former at the expense of Brazilian winger Douglas Costa.

The 28-year-old, despite being immensely talented, went down the pecking order as former manager Massimiliano Allegri preferred Paulo Dybala and Federico Bernardeschi as the starters. In fact, the ex-Bayern Munich star has starred in 25 games, in which he appeared as a substitute for 16 games. Costa is tied with Old Lady until 2022.

Is Costa a good option for  United?

Having the ability to play on both wings, Costa could be of great use to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. While the Red Devils have already acquired Daniel James from Swansea, who is expected to play on the right flank, Costa could be deployed as an inverted winger, the position he normally prefers.
