Manchester United Considering Douglas Costa As Sancho Alternative. According to the Manchester United recruitment team, United has been keeping tabs on Juventus winger Douglas Costa.
However, Jadon Sancho remains Manchester United’s No 1 target for the forward position but should that deal not come off. Costa is among the alternatives under consideration by the club.
The 29-year-old Brazilian has been at Shakhtar Donetsk and Bayern Munich and is currently at Juventus.
Also, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is targeting better squad depth to deal with another long season. After Manchester United’s Europa League exit to Sevilla, which he called “disappointing”.
Ole says “They [the players] need to keep improving, keep doing what they’ve done every single day and they’ve worked so hard, with the right attitude and mentality”.
“We need to strengthen the squad depth because it’s going to be a long season. We’re going to keep pushing and keep demanding more of the players that we have, but still, we’re looking to improve and it’s a strange one. The league starts very quickly, but then the [transfer] market is open for so long. So we’ve got to be both good, smart, and clever. It’s only going to be a couple of weeks rest until we get going again. We have to dust ourselves down, make sure that we are ready and fresh to go”, he adds.
