Monaco trouble for Arsenal and Manchester United

Bad news is on the horizon for Arsenal and Manchester United as Shakhtar forward Douglas Costa could be prised away by French cash-rich club Monaco, reports the Daily Star. Costa, 23, does not want to go back to Ukraine this summer as he is uncomfortable playing under the volatile conditions prevalent in the country at the moment, and thus is vying for a move away.

Arsenal and Manchester United have been alerted to the situation regarding the Brazilian, and the Gunners have even tabled a £15.8 million bid for Costa recently. Just as it seemed like Shakhtar might have to let go of their forward on a cut price deal, Monaco have reportedly come in with a £50 million double swoop offer for Costa and his team mate Alex Teixeira.

Chelsea could be interested in offering Spanish champions Atletico Madrid their German forward Andre Schurrle in part exchange for centre-back Joao Miranda, reports Marca.

The Los Rojiblancos are looking for striker additions to their squad after selling last season’s top scorer Diego Costa to Chelsea, and might be interested to land Schurrle, who has proved himself to a be a handy goalscorer at both club and international level.

Arsenal and Chelsea have long been chasing Rabiot, and are reportedly ready to swoop if he does become available for a reasonable price. Juventus have come in as the latest side interested in the lanky pass master, and although they admit that prising him out of the Parc Des Princess would be hard work, they still seem intent to plotting a move for him.
