Juventus winger Douglas Costa has reportedly rejected a move to Manchester United and hopes to convince coach Andrea Pirlo at the Allianz Stadium.
Calciomercato.com reveals the Brazilian winger has decided to fight for a place in the Old Lady side, even if sporting director Fabio Paratici needs to sell to unblock incoming operations.
The outlet reports Manchester United were ready to enter negotiations with Juventus over the former Bayern Munich attacker, but Douglas Costa has rejected a move to Old Trafford.
United had no chance of convincing the 30-year-old, capped 31 times by Brazil, and have allegedly turned their attention to Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele.
The report insists Douglas Costa hopes to show new coach Pirlo his worth and secure a place in the Bianconeri’s plans for the 2020-21 season.
