Brazilian striker Douglas Costa has just returned to his former club Bayern Munich.
Three years after leaving him, Douglas Costa is back at Bayern Munich. The Brazilian was loaned there by Juventus Turin for a period of one season.
Among the Bavarians, the international Auriverde will try to give new impetus to his career, he who has seen his playing time reduced considerably in recent months in Turin. During his first visit to the Allianz Arena, he had scored 8 goals in 50 games.

Costa’s return to Munich, however, would not have been possible if Uli Hoeness was still the club’s president. The latter had called him a mercenary when he joined the Old Lady in 2017.
Douglas Costa is Bayern’s third player in less than 24 hours after Spaniard Marc Roca (Espanyol) and striker Eric Choupo-Moting (PSG). Marseillais Bouna Sarr could also follow in the coming hours.
