Moyes has been handed a massive £100m transfer war-chest and will look to beat off a host of clubs to La Liga goal machine Costa, with the 25 year old said to have a £32m release clause written into his Vicente Calderon contract which many sides may look to activate this month.
Interest in Costa may well be as a result of the uncertainty surrounding Wayne Rooney’s Man United future, with the 28 year old being into the last 18 months of his current deal with no talks as yet to extend his contract.
