Manchester United are considering a move for Bournemouth winger David Brooks after cooling interest in a possible loan deal for the Juventus forward Douglas Costa.

The MEN understands United view Costa, 29, as an alternative to Jadon Sancho if they fail to resolve issues in negotiations with the Borussia Dortmund talisman's agent and had been looking at a possible loan, but regard Brooks as more attainable following Bournemouth's relegation.

Brooks, 23, has been under consideration by United for upwards of a year after impressing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in Bournemouth's 4-1 defeat at United in December 2018, but was deemed too expensive last summer as Bournemouth valued him at £50million. United eventually bought Daniel James from Swansea for £15m.
