Manchester United want Juventus attacker Douglas Costa in exchange for Romelu Lukaku, according to a report.

Manchester United are reportedly prepared to sell Romelu Lukaku to Juventus this summer providing that the Italian champions include Douglas Costa as part of their bid.

Juve are said to have offered Paulo Dybala to United in exchange for Lukaku, but the Argentina international is believed to be keen to stay in Turin and fight for his position.

According to the Daily Mail, the Red Devils have now switched their attention to Costa, who was also linked with a move to the 20-time English champions in last summer's transfer window.

The Brazil international only scored once for the Serie A giants during a disappointing 2018-19 campaign, but he missed a lot of football due to troublesome hamstring and calf injuries.

The 28-year-old completed a permanent move to the Old Lady last summer after spending the 2017-18 season on loan from Bayern Munich.

United will continue their preparations for the new campaign against Norwegian side Kristiansund on Tuesday.
