Manchester United reportedly make contact with Juventus regarding the availability of Merih Demiral and Douglas Costa.

Juventus duo Merih Demiral and Douglas Costa have reportedly emerged as transfer targets for Manchester United.

With the Italian giants said to be keen on securing a reunion with Paul Pogba, a number of players will allegedly be allowed to leave Turin during the next window.

According to Tuttosport, that has resulted in United asking Juventus whether they are prepared to sell Demiral and Costa.

Centre-back Demiral, a previous target of Leicester City, had made just seven appearances this season before suffering a serious knee injury in January.

Meanwhile, Costa, who turns 30 in September, has failed to impress since the Italian giants paid £35.2m for his signature in 2018.

The report adds that United do not want the Brazilian winger to be included in any deal involving Pogba.
