Douglas Costa is reportedly set to leave Juventus in the summer

The Brazilian impressed during a loan spell in Turin last season but has only scored once in 24 appearances since making his move from Bayern Munich permanent.

The Italian publication report that Juve are hoping the 28-year-old’s availability will trigger a bidding war in order to get more than £50million.

They paid around £34million for the winger just 12 months ago but are looking for an increase in their investment.

United face tough competition, though, to bring him to Old Trafford as Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain are understood to be keen.

Costa was linked to a move to the Red Devils while Jose Mourinho was in charge.

Now Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been confirmed as their permanent boss he will now set about building his squad but insisted he will not splash the cash for the sake of it.
