He was linked to Man Utd for 20m just a few months ago. Shahktar don't have a reputation for letting players go cheaply. Up until about 3 weeks ago the only Brazilians they signed in the last year are a LB a Striker and Taison (LW) but they lost Willian in that time. In the last 3 weeks they have bought Fred (LW/AM), Fernando (DMC) and Wellington Nem (AM) but they have also lost Mkhitaryan. He also started their first game of the season a couple of days ago (playing RW).I know it's random, but I'd rather we went for Douglas Costa (the little Brazilian from Shakhtar). His monetary value dropped by a couple of million in the last 6 months (mainly because of the influx of all the Brazilians @ that club, he didn't get many opportunities to play). The kid is absolute class, and imho his price tag wouldn't be that much higher than Chadli's. Just saying.
