Forget Costa – 3 Classy players Man Utd should look at instead including £25m January target


Manchester United opinion: 3 players United should target instead of Costa

According to a report from French publication Le10 Sport, Manchester United are plotting a summer move for Juventus’ Brazilian winger Douglas Costa.

The former Bayern Munich star fuelled the rumours of a move to Old Trafford after liking a tweet linking him to the club last month and reports from France suggest that the move could be on.

However, Costa has had a disappointing season both on and off the pitch, having scored just one goal in the Serie A so far. The Brazilian angered the Juventus board after he left for Paris to celebrate Neymar’s birthday, hours after a horrific car crash.

Despite all his talent on the ball, Costa’s off-field antics could prove to be a massive problem for the Red Devils, and with him turning 29 at the start of next season, it wouldn’t be a wise investment.

Manchester United, instead of Douglas Costa, should move for these three players who would be a massive upgrade on the Brazilian and would help United bring back the glory days to Old Trafford.

Steven Bergwijn

The Dutchman was linked with a £25million move to Manchester United in the January transfer window but the deal did not materialise.

Bergwijn has been in outstanding form for PSV Eindhoven so far this season, having scored 11 goals and provided 12 assists in the Eredivisie this season.

Bergwijn is one of the brightest prospects in world football and possesses incredible speed and skill on the ball. The young winger would be a brilliant addition and with him still being 21 years old, he would be a fabulous investment unlike Costa.

Hirving Lozano

The Mexican has been on the radar of Napoli and Manchester United in recent weeks and has been incredibly impressive in the Eredivisie so far this season. Lozano has scored 15 goals and has provided 8 assists in 24 games so far for PSV Eindhoven this season and would be a phenomenal addition to United’s squad.

Lozano’s pace, skill and technical ability on the ball will surely get the Old Trafford faithful excited and he has the potential to be one of the best players in the world in the coming years.

Cengiz Under

Under has been heavily linked with the likes of Arsenal and Chelsea over the last few months but according to ESPN, Manchester United joined the race to sign the young Turk in January. Under has been really impressive for AS Roma since making the move from Istanbul Basaksehir in 2017.

Mainly a right winger, Under has scored 6 goals and provided 9 assists so far this season in all competitions. Manchester United would be an incredible platform for Under to fulfil his potential and would be a fine investment since he is just 22 years old.
