Bayern Munich star Douglas Costa has once again warned the Bavarian giants that he is by no means content at the Allianz Arena, according to a report from The Sun.
Costa arrived at Bayern in the summer of 2015 and has since proved himself as one of the most devastating wide players in the world at present. He has so far made 69 appearances for the Bundesliga champions, scoring 13 times.
His breath-taking speed and exceptional dribbling ability make him like a nightmare for opposition defenders, and often they find themselves running behind shadows. Costa’s explosiveness certainly would be an invaluable asset to manager in the world, and thus it’s not a surprise that media reports claim he is being chased by one of Bayern’s fellow European big boys.
The Sun suggest Serie A leaders Juventus are quite interested in securing Costa’s services at the end of this season, and it seems they may have just been given plenty of encouragement.
The Sun quote the Brazilian making no guarantees over his future, and also suggesting that he could well leave Bayern if he fails to find an agreement with his current employers:
“I speak to the club often. We talk about my situation, if I’ll stay here or if I have to find another team to play for. I’m not always that happy here. But soon we will find a situation.”
It is believed Costa is not happy playing second-fiddle to Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben and is increasingly frustrated at his limited playing time.
Given Juve’s past dealings with Bayern and the impending conclusion of Kingsley Coman’s move to Germany on a permanent basis, the Italian champions are reportedly leading the race to sign the gifted Bayern star if he decides to move away from Munich this summer.
