SunSport quoting Corriere Torino reports that the accident happened between Livorno Ferraris and Santhia in the province of Vercelli, on the Turin-Milan motorway.

The publication further revealed that Costa's Jeep Cherokee crashed into a Fiat Punto and the 47-year-old driver driving the other car was taken to Biella Hospital after suffering injuries, though the severity of his condition has not been revealed.

However, no one has been able to recount how the accident started, as the crash is currently being investigated by the Novara Est traffic police.

Costa initially joined Juve on a loan deal from Bayern Munich and made his move permanent in 2018 but has not been impressive since then.

He has scored just one goal, two assists in 24 games in all competitions for the Old Lady this campaign and was part of the team held by Parma last weekend.

Meanwhile, the Red Devils still maintain their interests in the Brazilian regardless of his goal ratio for his present club, as they look to add more firepower to their attack.

Costa has a deal with his present club until the summer of 2022, but it has been claimed Juve would be willing to offload him in a swap deal with Paul Pogba.

Legit.ng earlier reported that Manchester United were willing to allow Paul Pogba re-join Juventus this month in an exchange for Douglas Costa.

The Italian League giants were heavily linked with a move for the French star last summer but the deal failed to pull through.

Pogba would have dumped the club should former boss Jose Mourinho was still in charge with Barcelona among a host of clubs monitoring the situation.
