Douglas Costa’s move from Ukranian side, Shaktar Donetsk seems a little more realistic now, as the club has announced the price tag for the player.
Shaktar was once unwilling to let the Brazilian go, but now according to Sportmediaset the club has set the price tag at €26 million.
The 23-year-old has grasped a lot of interest since his refusal to return to Shaktar as war continues in the Crimean region of Ukraine. Several players refused to travel back to their training-grounds the other day deeming the country too dangerous to travel back to.
Manchester United is one club interested in Douglas Costa. Milan were also linked with interest in the Brazilian, but with the €26 million price tag, Milan’s interest could be shifted somewhere else due to their frugal summer window thus far.
