Good news: Man Utd cleared to seal £54m deal for Douglas Costa

Manchester United may have dumped Jose Mourinho in December, but the club has yet to rub off all of the players he reeled off on his January wishlist.

Douglas Costa, one of the big names in club football was a target for the former United boss, and still is as United plan a summer raid for the player.

Costa has yet to impress like he did during his spell at Bayern Munich in Juventus and the Old Lady are looking to get him off their books in the summer.

The excellent Brazilian winger has just one goal and two assists in 21 outings for Juventus this term, a very poor tally, compared to his exploits in former club Bayern.

Before Mou sacking, the Portuguese had sounded out the need to sign Douglas, though he was not fully backed since he could not bring the best out of the players at his disposal last term.

The recent flap in Costa’s performance will push Juve to cash in on the player as they plan a summer overhaul, according to Calciomercato.

United had to shelled out 53.9 million pounds according to Italian TV channel Rai Sport, a move which could see him become the club’s fourth most expensive United signing in history.
