Manchester United are reportedly keeping tabs on Juventus winger Douglas Costa as the Red Devils seek out alternatives to Jadon Sancho.

Manchester United are reportedly eyeing up Juventus winger Douglas Costa as a potential alternative to Jadon Sancho.

While Sancho is believed to be Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's number one target this summer, Borussia Dortmund are reportedly holding firm on their £108m asking price and United may be forced to seek out alternatives to the England international.

Costa, who made just seven Serie A starts for Juve during their triumphant 2019-20 campaign, has supposedly been identified by the Red Devils as an ideal cut-price signing should a deal for Sancho fall through.

Transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio told Sky Sports News: "Juventus want him [Costa] to leave. His agents are moving to find a solution, they have talked to Manchester United, to understand if the would be interested.

"They will think about it, but the problem is that Douglas Costa is often injured, so this is a problem for a club that wants to buy him. The agents have talked to Manchester United, for sure, and have proposed his transfer."

Costa is under contract with the Serie A champions until 2022, where he has amassed 10 goals from 101 appearances since arriving in Turin from Bayern Munich three years ago.
