Shakhtar Donetsk face the prospect of having to cash in on Douglas Costa in the coming weeks.

Manchester United, Manchester City and AS Roma have all asked after Douglas Costa, confirmed his agent this week.

Shakhtar coach Mircea Lucecu concedes: “Nothing official has been done yet, but I’d prefer to keep him in the squad because he is young, only 20 years old, and had a great start to his time with us.

“We’ll be playing in the Champions League and he has a group of Brazilians in Donetsk with him.

“However, if I am put in a position to sell, then there’s nothing I can do about it. I won’t keep players who do not want to be here, but Douglas Costa is certainly a great talent.”
