translated by Claudio Colla
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.
