Douglas Costa de Souza

 

Born: September 14,1990

Club: Grêmio

Country: Brazil

 

Sir Alex Ferguson has renewed his interest in 18-year-old wunderkind Douglas Costa. The under-20 Seleção international is already being hailed as the ‘next Ronaldinho’. This, we hope, is referring back to the days when Ronnie was actually a good footballer.

 

United’s proffering with Brazilian side Grêmio for the winger’s services comes as no surprise. Ferguson is clearly looking to follow up his coup for Michael Owen with the signing of a fifth left-midfielder (Nani, Obertan, Park, Tosic) with tons of potential but only 20 senior games under his belt.
