Juventus sign Douglas Costa from Bayern Munich

Juventus have confirmed the signing of Douglas Costa from Bayern Munich.

The 26-year-old Brazilian spent two seasons with the Bundesliga champions, after moving from Shakhtar Donetsk.

He will now join Juve on an initial one-year loan. The Serie A outfit will pay €6million for the winger at first, while the deal also includes a purchase option valued at €40m after the year is up.

The option to buy becomes mandatory, after Costa reaches a set number of appearances.

Bayern CEO, Karl Heinz Rummenigge, said: “We have held some serious and constructive talks with the Juventus representatives.

“All the financial demands of FC Bayern have been fulfilled. I want to thank Douglas for his performances.

“After two successful seasons with four titles he wanted to accept a new challenge. We accepted this and wish him, together with his family, all the best in Italy.”
