Manchester United target, Douglas Costa, close to joining Villarreal
Spanish side, Villareal, could complete the signing of Grêmio’s Douglas Costa over the next few days.
The 18-year-old midfielder, who was linked to Manchester United, last year, is said to be in talks with Villarreal’s vice president, José Manuel Llaneza, who is currently in Porto Alegre.
Costa came to light in the 2008 Campeonato Brasileiro but this season has not had much playing time under coach Celso Roth. In view of this and because Villareal are expected to meet Grêmio’s valuation of the player (as yet undisclosed) it is thought the deal could be wrapped up without delay.
