Video: Douglas Costa, Another Brazilian For United?

Hailed by many as the next Ronaldinho of Brazil, Douglas Costa has been contacted by Manchester United, with a view to replace departed Cristiano Ronaldo.

According to the Brazilian’s representative, Cesar Bottega, United are leading the pursuit of the £20 million-rated winger. With over £80 million to spend on new signings, £20 million is only small change to Ferguson.

Douglas have recently signed a four-year contract which will keep him at the Olimpico Monumental until 2013. But with United having lost a key offensive player of their squad, it appears that the Devils may swoop for his services sooner rather than later.

"There have been informal conversations and I believe Manchester United would match those values," Bottega told the Brazilian press.

He does look quite good in the video. More like Manchester City's Robinho than Ronaldinho though.
