Manchester United and Chelsea are on alert as £65million pair Douglas Costa and Renato Sanches have been told they are “allowed to leave” Bayern Munich, according to reports.
Carlo Ancelotti reportedly wants to open up room for new signings and has picked the two as the pair who can go.
Such a move would mark an incredible downfall for 19-year-old Sanches, who joined just last year amid interest from Real Madrid and United.
And now Bild claim Sanches and tricky winger Costa could be shown the door after disappointing seasons.
Sanchez, who has a contract until 2021, has been “far from the breakthrough” Bayern bosses wanted.
The club paid an initial £28m for him but that fee could jump to £60m with club and country-based add-ons.
Bayern are looking to sell Sanches for around £30m before their initial fee is increased.
Costa, 26, who arrived at the Allianz from Shakhtar for £21m in 2015, has scored just seven goals in all competitions this season.
His current deal runs until 2020 but, according to Bild, he has “no chance” of nailing down a spot in the side.
Bayern will look to get around £35m for the Brazilian, who simply cannot usurp Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery despite them being a combined age of 67.
Chelsea’s Willian is of interest to Ancelotti and a deal for his transfer with Costa thrown in from their end could be in the pipeline.
Costa said earlier this year he does not “completely feel happy” at Bayern and described the Premier League as “fantastic”.
