Douglas Costa is moving from Juventus Turin to Bayern Munich


Douglas Costa is on loan from Juventus before the transfer window closes. target can confirm.

The 30-year-old is determined to restart his career and sees Bayern as the ideal place to do so after his injuries in Italy.

Costa originally joined the Bundesliga giant from Shakhtar Donetsk in 2015, before a loan in Turin two years later led to a permanent move to Serie A.

Although the Brazilian initially impressed on loan to Juventus, he has not shot regularly for the club in the past two years – he only scored four times in two seasons.

Injuries have held Costa back lately and with Andrea Pirlo’s side well-positioned when it comes to attacking, all parties agree that he should loan the season to Bayern.

Juventus was initially interested in selling the 30-year-old, but is now hoping that Costa can push his price up next year with strong performances in Germany.

During the 2019-20 season, Costa made 29 appearances for Juve and impressed when he was available. He scored three goals in all competitions and provided another seven assists.

However, his season was riddled with injury issues, a total of 21 games missing, and it wasn’t until the game was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic that he was able to put together a long series of appearances and even then they usually came off the bench.

He also spent a lot of time during the previous tenure. He made 18 Serie A appearances in the 2018/19 season, but missed four games due to suspension and another 16 due to injuries.

These were overwhelmingly muscular, with a hamstring problem that lasted for two months, only to be hit by a calf injury he sustained after just 30 minutes of competition.

During his time in Turin, Costa won three Scudetti and is also two-time Bundesliga champions with Bayern.

Hansi Flick’s team is strengthened by the arrival of the Brazilian who scored all four Bayern goals with Robert Lewandowski on Sunday after a late 4-3 win over Hertha Berlin.
