The Official Representative of Manchester United Is Seen at The Portuguese League Match in a Possible Reconnaissance Mission of Diogo Costa


The official representative of Manchester United was spotted on Saturday during Porto’s game against Vitoria de Guimaraes.

Portuguese news portal O Jogo via SportWitness reports that a United representative attends Porto games is not uncommon.

It is known that the “red devils” have scouts who are present at games in the top division of Portugal.

What catches the eye in this case is that the official representative of United was present at the away game of Porto. They are usually limited to home games at Estádio do Dragão.

SportWitness reports that not only United represented the staff of their interests.

Borussia Dortmund, Real Sociedad, Rennes and Bologna also sent emissaries.

The player United could pay attention to is Porto goalkeeper Diogo Costa. The shot stopper has been repeatedly linked to the Old Trafford switch.

There are big doubts about the suitability of David de Gea for the Erik ten Hag system.

De Gea’s shortcomings became more noticeable during United’s 3-2 defeat to Arsenal at the Emirates.

The Spaniard’s terrible distribution, inability to play with his feet and lack of sweeping actions were weaknesses that Arsenal players used again and again on the way to winning all three points.

De Gea’s dominance in his penalty area and willingness to claim overhangs also came into question. During the game, there was a case when he had a chance to catch the ball without pressure, but instead he decided to hit it right on the leg of an Arsenal player.

It was for such reasons that a swoop for Costa was discussed. Of course, the Portuguese had a bad World Cup, but he played great at Porto, especially in the Champions League.

Earlier this month, it was reported that Jorge Mendes is working on a deal to bring the 23-year-old to England in the summer.
