Manchester United keen on Douglas Costa and Alex Sandro
The Juventus pair is considered expendable in the summer transfer window. The Italian champions are keen to restructure their finances and view the duo as marketable commodities. (h/t The Sun)
Costa is seen as an alternative to Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho. A move for the youngster is under threat after United refused to meet the German giants’ £108million asking price for the player.
In-fact the 29-year-old has missed 46 games due to a number injuries in the past two years.
Costa still has two years left to go on his contract and is keen to stay put in Turin. Whether his stance will change in the future or not remains to be seen.
A new solution at left-back?
The winger is not the only Samba star in United’s sights. His Juventus teammate Alex Sandro is also on the Red Devils’ radar. (h/t The Sun)
Valued at a similar £36m, Sandro was Juventus’ preferred option at left-back last season. Aged 29, the Old Lady is keen to see him replaced by a younger and cheaper alternative. The Brazilian had earlier been linked with moves to both PSG and Chelsea.
The youngster has struggled of late and still has much to learn before he can compete at the highest level. Given his age, Sandro can be an excellent short-term solution until Williams hones his trade.
