Man Utd target Costa still to open talks with suitors

Gremio's Douglas Costa is being tracked by a host of top European club's, including Manchester United, who were strongly linked with a move for the 18-year-old last summer. "We know that many people from various European clubs have come to Brazil to see Douglas," his agent Cesar Bottega told Calciomercato.

"Some have seen him play for the Under 20 national side and since then we have been unable to declare our public appreciation.

"He showed many qualities and it is normal people will like him.

"But we have not talked to any teams, we know clubs are following him but there is nothing official.

"Nobody has done anything, the big clubs are very careful. They know who to watch - but there is nothing."
