Douglas Costa returns to FC Bayern
FC Bayern have signed Douglas Costa on loan from Juventus. The Brazilian, who played for the German record champions from 2015 to 2017, arrives on loan from Juventus for this season. Three years ago, the winger moved from Munich to the long-established Italian club, where he has celebrated winning the Serie A championship every season since.
Board member for sport Hasan Salihamidzic: "Douglas will strengthen us on the wings, which is important for our game. With Serge Gnabry, Leroy Sane, Kingsley Coman, Jamal Musiala and Douglas we now have top players in those areas. This gives the coach the opportunity to rotate the squad sensibly. Douglas knows FC Bayern and will settle in again very quickly."
Douglas Costa: "I'm very happy to be playing for FC Bayern again. I had a wonderful time in Munich with lots of successes and I'm sure we'll win titles again."
Costa (30) scored 14 goals in 77 competitive matches in his first spell at FC Bayern following his move from Shakhtar Donetsk. During his time in Munich, he celebrated two German championships, one DFB Cup win and also triumphed in the DFL Supercup. He made 103 appearances for Juventus, scored ten goals, won three championships, and lifted the Italian cup once as well as the Italian Supercup. To date he has made 31 appearances for the Brazilian national team and has scored three times.
