Douglas Costa Joins Bayern Munich with Five Year Deal

Douglas Costa has just finished his signing with Germany giant Bayern Munich. He has signed a contract with Munich for five years and with this deal, Chelsea ‘s wish to take the Brazilian to Stamford bridge is shattered. The 24 year old left Shakhtar Donetsk to play in the Bundesliga until 2020 which indicates that he already determines his future with Bayern. Bayern is really pleased with this new signing, Douglas Costa is a player that Bayern needs considering their midfield players who are getting older. Bayern executive Jan-Christian Dreesen told the Bundesliga side’s official website that Douglas is the club is happy with this signing and hopes that Costa will adapt quickly.

“We are very pleased we were able to sign Douglas Costa. His five year contract to 2020 also shows we are planning for the future. We hope he gets accustomed to life in Munich quickly and will improve the team,” told Dreesen.

Douglas was an important player back then in Donetsk. During six season with Donetsk, he made 28 league goals, a number which is not too impressive for an attacking midfielder but he is better known for his creativity, creating chances rather than finishing them. Douglas character is expected to be a great help for Bayern midfield since they already have a sharp ace like Thomas Muller in front.

Bayern is currently having problem with its midfield. Not only some players in the central field are fighting injuries like Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben, the other players like Bastian Schweinsteiger, Xabi Alonso and Lahm are having trouble with long term competition as they are getting old with total age of 94 for these three players.

Together with Donetsk, Douglas achieved a domestic treble of the Ukranian league, cup and Super Cup in 2010-11. He has nine caps for Brazil and scored his first goal for his home country in the currently ongoing Copa America in which Brazil could not advance to the semifinal as they were crushed by Paraguay. Douglas has less than two weeks to get ready and join his new club on July 11 where he will synch with his teammates.

Shaktar met Bayern in the last 16 of last season’s Champions League and during the match, Bayern director of sport Matthias Sammer was already impressed with Douglas’s style and skill.

“He has great technical skills. He has a powerful left foot, is very mobile and is extremely fast. Douglas decided to leave Brazil for Ukraine and he is now in the Bundesliga after deciding Bayern Munich was the next step to take in his career,” said Sammer.
