Turning 29 on September 14, Brazilian international winger Douglas Costa, according to what his agent, Giovanni Branchini, told Sportsmail, was heavily tracked by Manchester United, during last summer window: "They were strongly interested in him, they've actually been for a long time. They weren't the only English club keen on Douglas, but they surely were the most forward. Juventus, however, never considered signing him away". Playing for Bianconeri since 2017/18, former Bayern Munich man, a front-row item for new boss Maurizio Sarri, is currently on a deal with Serie A defending champions until June 2022.
