Brazilian winger and former Bayern Munich star Douglas Costa has sealed a transfer to the United States Major League Soccer, joining Los Angeles Galaxy. The forward has been finding it hard to stay at one club for a llg time and has been switching clubs for most parts of his peak years as a professional footballer. Signed from Bayern Munich some years ago by Juventus, he failed to nail down a starting berth at the Old Lady and it was the same reason that saw him sold by the German Bundesliga giants. After joining Juve, Costa was an exciting player to watch as he had the pace and the tricks of proper Brazilian superstar. He could best his man and either score a goal, create a chance, or record an assist.

Hiwrvwr, he began to lose form and with the competition for places in the Juve squad very tight, he lost his opportunity to become a regular starter at the club. Upon his return to the managerial role at the club, Massimiliano Allegro deemed the winger surplus to requirements at the Turin club and he passed a clear message across to the Samba star to start looking for another club. He eventually joined a club in his native Brazil on loan but the deal was not made permanent after the expiry of the agreement so he returned to Juventus after the loan spell.

But of course, it was the same situation at Juve when he went back so it was agreed upon that he would be looking for another club yet again. Several clubs came knocking on his door but he finally responded to the call of Los Angeles Galaxy, signing a contract that will initially be at the club on loan for six months after which he will put pen to paper on a longer contract which will last for 18 months and will be a permanent one.
