Transfer Bid Made? Rumours Emerge In Italy Of Monster Offer From Manchester United For Juventus Star
Manchester United have made a 60m Euro bid for Douglas Costa according to reports in Italy.
Sky Sports via Rai Sport in Italy state that the Premier League club have lodged an official big for the tricky Brazilian winger ahead of the January transfer window. Speculation surrounding the future of the former Bayern Munich star has been building in recent weeks but this news would be a major story in England if true.
United fans are riding high at the moment following their 5-1 win away at Cardiff yesterday evening under new manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and this news could well turn out to be another Christmas present.
Gossip about Man United wanting Costa started after Jose Mourinho was sacked earlier this week and it will be fascinating to see if a deal can be reached with the January transfer window now just a matter of days away. The report suggests that the initial bid is likely to be turned down but that would surely only serve as an opening offer from the Old Trafford club.
The 28-year-old flying winger is known for his pace and flair on the wing which would seem to be suited to the fast pace of the Premier League.
The Red Devils have endured an awful season so far and have a mammoth job on their hands if they are to get anywhere near the Champions League places this term but there is now hope amongst the fans following the departure of Mourinho and it showed on the pitch at Cardiff.
The addition of a player like Costa would only serve to boost the positive atmosphere at the club heading into 2019.
