A couple of Bayern Munich fans drinking here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are looking over to the bar at the news from the Express, which claims that the German giants have set their sights on Shaktar Donetsk forward Douglas Costa.
The 24-year-old Brazilian is highly-rated over in Ukraine, and it looks like he will finally leave the club in search of top European football this summer.
The Bundesliga champions have earmarked the attacking midfielder as a better option to the pricey alternatives of Manchester United winger Angel Di Maria, and Atletico Madrid ace Antoine Griezmann.
As our landlord here in the Transfer Tavern quips, do Bayern really need yet another attacking talent? haven’t they already got enough? There is no denying Costa has bags of talent, but whether he can cut it at one of the biggest clubs in world football is debatable.
Football fans…. What do you make of this news? Could Costa cut it at Bayern Munich? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
