Douglas Costa 3 1

Manchester United Opinion: 3 wingers United should look at instead of Costa

According to a report from Le10 Sport, Manchester United are one of the host of European clubs interested in signing Juventus star, Douglas Costa.

Last month, the Brazilian winger, 28, sparked rumours of a move to Manchester United by liking a story on Twitter that claimed the Red Devils were preparing a summer move for him.

Douglas Costa has endured a frustrating season in Turin as manager Max Allegri has preferred other forwards to the Brazilian. The 28-year-old, who has a contract at Juventus until the summer of 2022, has managed only a single goal in 17 Serie A appearances.

The Metro claims Costa could fetch upwards of £60million, but for a player that has struggled all this season and will turn 29 in September, the fee is huge and United can certainly do much better than investing on the Juventus winger.

That being said, here are three players the Red Devils should consider instead of Costa this summer.

1. Suso (AC Milan)

United have faced problems on the right wing for some time now and should Ole Gunnar Solskjaer get appointed as the permanent manager of the club, he should address the problem this summer itself.

AC Milan star Suso would be perfect for Solskjaer’s United. The Spaniard has starred for Milan this season with five goals and eight assists in 26 Serie A games.

Suso’s pace, direct running and dribbling skills would add an extra dimension to United’s attack. The diminutive 25-year-old has all the attributes to flourish under Solskjaer.

2. Hirving Lozano (PSV Eindhoven)

PSV Eindhoven star Hirving Lozano has been on Manchester United’s radar in recent weeks.

The Mexican has been in sublime form in the Eredivisie, scoring 19 goals in all competitions thus far. He was excellent in the World Cup last year and has backed his 19-goal debut season in the Netherlands by producing the same figures again this term.

Lozano is a speedy winger and his passing, vision and creativity could be an invaluable asset for United on the right wing. His goalscoring return also shows that he can be clinical in the box. Undoubtedly, the Mexican star has the potential to be a world class player in the coming years.

3. Cengiz Under (AS Roma)

Cengiz Under joined AS Roma in the summer of 2017 and has since become one of the most importantly players of the club. He is rated very highly in European football, having already been involved in 15 goals so far this season, despite missing around a dozen games for AS Roma.

The young Turk can play on either flank and has the ability to play as a false 9 as well. The 21-year-old will surely prove value for money for United if they can convince Roma to sell him to.

With him, the Red Devils will have a natural right winger who has the ability to run at players, beat them with ease and provide crosses in the box. With his close control and exceptional dribbling skills, Under will be a top acquisition for Solskjaer’s side.
