Juventus stuck with Douglas Costa

Juventus are having difficulty finding a buyer for Douglas Costa, with reports his only firm proposals are from China and Qatar.

The 30-year-old is not part of the Bianconeri’s plans and they had hoped to raise precious funds with his sale this summer.

However, Calciomercato.com note that the offers expected from Manchester United, Atletico Madrid and Bayern Munich have either not materialised, or are considerably lower than the €50m asking price.

His poor injury record could also be putting clubs off, while it’s suggested Douglas Costa does not want to join clubs from China or the Middle East.

Juventus may well therefore be stuck with the Brazilian for the time being, as his contract runs to June 2022.

They are in a similar quandary with Federico Bernardeschi, while Sami Khedira is so far refusing to terminate his contract early by mutual consent.
