Manchester United are expected to spend big money again this summer as we look to challenge Manchester City for the 2018-19 Premier League title.
We have been linked to making several big money offers for a number of top players around the world.
The latest report is that we are prepared to fork out a £79 million bid to sign Bayern Munich’s Douglas Costa this summer, according to reports.
The 27-year-old has been with the German giants since signing at the Allianz Arena from Shakhtar Donetsk in 2015. However, Costa spent last season on loan at Juventus where he scored seven goals and produced 13 assists.
After paying £7 million up front last summer, the Italian champions had an agreement to make the deal permanent at £33 million. Max Allegri’s side are yet to make an offer for the Brazilian international.
Now the Sun are reporting that Manchester United are ready to make a £79 million offer this summer should Juventus not come in for Douglas Costa.
How much accuracy there is to this report can certainly be questioned as Douglas Costa is predominately a left winger and we already have Alexis Sanchez, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial in this position – with the latter strongly linked with his exit this summer due to a lack of game time.
