Diogo Costa to be transferred as Porto needs €50 million to balance their books

About Football Express UK

Diogo Costa, who has the attention of Manchester United, may be transferred during the summer transfer window. It is due to Porto’s precarious financial situation, reports Record.

The Portuguese player has frequently been connected with the Red Devils. And it was just made public that United scouts have been closely monitoring him at the Stadium do Dragao.

The club has not yet reached out to the Premier League team, but they have received a potential boost because Porto needs to balance their finances.

According to records, Porto must make at least €50 million back before investing. Selling Diogo Costa this summer is the quickest option to achieve their financial objectives.

Diogo Costa is also under Manchester United’s radar

Although Costa has long been a target of the Red Devils, it is unclear whether the team will make an approach to sign him this summer.

Before the World Cup, the 23-year-old agreed to a new deal. That raised his release clause from €60 million to €75 million. Porto might demand the same.

Diogo Costa is a fantastic long-term addition for United. This season, he has a pass completion rate of over 76% and averages eight long balls each game.

Superb reflexes are another trait shared by the Portuguese. He made history by successfully stopping three consecutive penalties during the Champions League group stage.

Despite this, United might pass up the chance to sign him. Given that David de Gea has had another strong campaign in goal for the team.

The Spanish great has made a number of incredible saves. He recently prevented Fulham’s moment of insanity by keeping United in the FA Cup quarterfinal.

De Gea is not very gifted in terms of distribution or mobility, but under Ten Hag, he has made progress. He could, in our opinion, be the number one for at least two more seasons.
