Gremio confirmed that Douglas Costa would not be allowed to join United for trial. According to numerous rumours, Sir Alex was keen to see the 18-year-old in training before making a decision about him.

However, the president insisted that Costa ‘is past that stage’: he’s too good for a trial. So, we have to decide on scout reports, videos and such things whether we want him or not.

I hope Sir Alex won’t regard this as an insult: he should seriously consider this guy because he looks very talented albeit he’s allegedly very expensive as well.
