During the summer transfer window, Manchester United explored various goalkeeper options, including Portugal international Diogo Costa. However, they eventually signed Andre Onana from Inter Milan. Onana’s performances have been inconsistent since his arrival, prompting renewed interest in Diogo Costa.
According to A Bola, Manchester United is once again considering the acquisition of Costa in the upcoming January transfer window. The goalkeeper position remains a concern for manager Erik ten Hag, and the club may initiate negotiations to secure the 24-year-old’s services.
The Portuguese news source reports that Porto is likely to demand the fulfillment of Costa’s release clause, which stands at €75 million (£65 million), should Manchester United pursue the signing.
Diogo Costa has an impressive track record with Porto, having won major domestic titles, including two Liga Nos trophies. He also serves as the first-choice goalkeeper for the Portuguese national team, earning 18 caps and representing them at the FIFA World Cup.
Andre Onana had an exceptional season with Inter Milan, boasting the highest number of clean sheets in the UEFA Champions League. However, his performances since moving to England have been mostly average, with a recent upturn in form.
In your opinion, should Manchester United proceed with a £65 million move for Diogo Costa in January, or should they allow Onana more time to adapt to the Premier League?
