Man United join Liverpool, Juve in race for Bayern star – report

Manchester United have reportedly joined Premier League rivals Liverpool as well as Juventus in the race to sign Bayern Munich winger Douglas Costa.

The Brazilian is rumoured to be considering leaving the German giants this summer, almost two years after joining from Shakhtar Donetsk for €30 million.

The 26-year-old has not fulfilled his potential since arriving at the Allianz Arena and is looking for a fresh challenge to reignite his career.

Costa, who has also been linked with Tottenham, is perhaps more suited to Liverpool’s style of game than United’s, but Jose Mourinho is looking to add pace and dynamism to his attack for next season and is believed to have targeted Costa as a genuine option for the Red Devils.

Italian champions Juve, however, remain favourites to land the forward ahead of what could become a summer bidding war, according to the report in Calciomercato.
