Jose Mourinho to spend big on Bayern’s Douglas Costa: report

by Marwan Harraz

Jose Mourinho is happy to splash the cash on Bayern star Douglas Costa who is currently on loan at Juventus.

The Brazilian has taken the Serie A by storm this season, helping his side win yet another title in an impressive campaign.

Manchester United are hoping to revamp their squad in the upcoming summer transfer window in order to challenge for the Premier League themselves.

Though Mourinho has insisted he has no interest in signing any attackers, Costa does fit the bill of a typical Mourinho player.

Capable of playing on either flank, the versatile player is more of a traditional winger than the ‘modern’ inside forward.

According to Metro, the Sun report that Jose is willing to part with £79m in order to sign Douglas from Bayern should Juventus not make his move permanent.

The Italian giants have a £33m buyout clause for him but reports have emerged that they would rather focus their efforts on signing a top midfielder.

It appears that the Portuguese manager is willing to observe the current situation and see how it develops before he makes a move.

Though Douglas Costa will cost quite a chunk of money, Jose Mourinho may make some of that money back by offloading one of his current crop of attackers.
