Man Utd linked as Juventus put Douglas Costa (plus 4 more) up for sale

Manchester United are being linked with Juventus midfielder Douglas Costa.

Tuttosport says Costa is one of five players set to be sold by the Turin side this summer with Manchester United having a strong interest in the 29-year-old's signature.

Midfield duo Blaise Matuidi and Sami Khedira are also set to be moved on this summer as new coach Andrea Pirlo plans a rejuvenation of the Juventus squad.

Reports in Italy state that Khedira's contract could be terminated by mutual consent, while World Cup winner Matuidi has been linked with a move to David Beckham's MLS franchise Inter Miami.

And one or two full-backs could end up leaving the Serie A champions, with Brazilian defender Alex Sandro and Mattia De Sciglio most likely to leave.
