Bayern’s Costa undergoes medical at Juventus

(Reuters) – Bayern Munich winger Douglas Costa is undergoing medical tests at Juventus ahead of his expected move, the Italian champions said on Wednesday.

“Douglas Costa is currently undergoing a routine medical ahead of a proposed transfer from Bayern Munich,” Juventus said on their website (www.juventus.com).

The Brazil international, capped 21 times, will join Juventus on a loan for a fee of 6 million euros (5.37 million pounds), according to Italian media.

The contract should also envisage the option to make the move of the 26-year-old permanent for 40 million euros.

Costa spent five years at Ukrainian top-tier club Shakhtar Donetsk before joining the Bundesliga champions in 2015, making 23 league appearances last season and scoring four goals.
