Man Utd chief scout Lawlor shuts down Diego Costa pursuit

Manchester United chief scout Jim Lawlor has shut down plans of signing Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa this month.

The Sunday Express says there was talk within Old Trafford of triggering the £32 million release clause enabling United to land Atletico Madrid’s Diego Costa in the January window.

However it’s understood that Lawlor left the latest spying mission on the forward unimpressed and so Costa has been relegated to the deals pending tray.

The Brazilian has struggled for form over the past two months.
