🚨 "It's my dream" - Douglas Costa names the European club he'd like to return to

33-year-old ready for one last hurrah

Douglas Costa has revealed that he wants to return to Europe and rekindle his love affair with one of his previous employers.

Now 33 years of age, Costa has limited time left in the game at the highest level so any move back will surely be his last hurrah on the continent.

The Brazilian has played for Bayern Munich in the past and it was from there where he was loaned and eventually sold to Juventus.

It’s to Italy’s ‘Old Lady’ that he’s made a pitch via an exclusive video with Daily Briefing columnist and transfer expert, Fabrizio Romano.

“I’d love to return to Juventus, it’s my dream,” he noted. “I want to be a soldier for Allegri and feel Juve fans love again. My agent is in contact with all clubs interested including Juve.”

Given that there’s a strong likelihood that the bianconeri are going to lose attacking midfielder, Paul Pogba, for a significant period, by bringing in Costa, who is effectively a like-for-like player and one who knows the club well and therefore is unlikely to need a settling in period, they could hit the jackpot.

If Juve aren’t interested, however, there are other options.

“We’re also gonna fly to Saudi, that league is growing,” Costa added.

What do you think of Douglas Costa’s ‘come and get me’ plea to Juventus? Is he the right sort of player for their needs? Let us know in the comments.
