A move to Manchester City may be the “interesting chance” for Douglas Costa, says Rivaldo, with the legendary Brazilian urging his countryman to push for a change away from Juventus.
“When I look at the transfer market, I think it would be a fascinating possibility for Douglas Costa to move from Juventus to Manchester City.” World Cup champion Rivaldo told Betfair in 2002.
“Costa wasn’t performing at Juve and was eager to find a bigger platform to shine at City as the club seems to be trying to recruit him. A professional career is so brief it would be necessary for him to have a new club where he could play more frequently. He’s a great player and I love him.”
