Interesting news are out and it has been reported that Manchester United have been denied in their bid to take wonderkid Douglas Costa on a 20-day trial.

It was reported that the young Brazilian midfielder, 18, has been tipped as a long-term replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo at Old Trafford.

It was reported that the player is valued at around £13million but United are unsure whether he is ready for first team action.

Douglas’ current club Gremio are keen to keep hold of him but admit there is interest in the player from Europe and club president Duda Kroeff recently said that he received a phone call from someone working for Manchester United and was asked for Douglas to be released and said that he would not play, but they wanted to see him in action.

Duda added that he denied the request as Douglas is an established player and not a stranger. He also said that Costa has no need to face tests at European clubs.
