The agent of Brazilian wonderkid Douglas Costa fears his club Gremio could price him out of a move to Manchester United. The Premier League champions are keen on the 18-year-old, dubbed the new Ronaldinho, but Gremio want around £18m. Costa's representative, Cesar Bottega, claims informal talks have been held but added: 'I don't believe that they (Manchester United) will reach this figure. 'Right now, an offer might come in at a maximum of £6.7m. But this would not be enough for [Gremio] president Duda Kroeff.'
