Sir Alex Ferguson wasn’t the only notable figure watching United’s game against Bolton from the stands yesterday.
The Telegraph notes:
“Costa, who left Gremio for Shakhtar Donetsk in a £5m transfer in January 2010, watched Manchester United’s clash with Bolton Wanderers on Saturday from the Old Trafford directors’ box.
“The 20-year-old has scored 15 goals in 61 appearances for Shakhtar, who are due to face Barcelona in the Champions League quarter-finals next month, and was a £7m target for United in August 2009 but Gremio rejected attempts to take him to Old Trafford.”
The player dubeed ‘the New Ronaldinho’ is the latest in a never ending list of youngsters reportedly destined for Old Trafford.
Whether there’s any truth to these rumours remains to be seen but there’s no denying Costa is a huge talent.
