The Brazilian winger will join Juventus from Bayern Munich for a reported fee of 46 million euros. Juventus will loan Costa for a year and pay 10 million euros up front with an obligation to pay the other 36 million next summer. Costa has had an up and down tenure with Bayern. After joining from Shakhtar Dontesk in 2015 for 30 million euros the winger scored 2 goals and assisted another 12 in the first half of the 2015-2016 Bundesliga season.
