AN incredible swap deal between Juventus and Barcelona threatens to see Manchester United miss out on TWO potential Jadon Sancho alternatives.

Reports suggest the two European giants are considering exchanging Douglas Costa and Ousmane Dembele.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side have held talks over a loan move for 23-year-old France international Dembele.

They have also long been linked with a swoop for Brazilian speedster Costa.

Both have been touted as back-up options for United if they fail to land top target Sancho.

Costa has already turned down to a move to Wolves.

Should the amazing swap transfer be comleted, it will be back to the drawing board for Solskjaer.

United have already missed out on Federico Chiesa – who was viewed as another alternative to Sancho.
