Juventus have confirmed that they have exercised their right to sign Douglas Costa on a permanent deal following an exceptional loan spell at the club. The winger was signed for an initial loan fee of £5m last summer from Bavarian giants Bayern Munich, and helped Juventus to their fourth consecutive league and cup double with seven goals and 13 assists in all competitions.
Following this impressive maiden campaign in the Zebrette shirt, Juventus have opted to exercise the right to sign the player on a permanent deal for a reported £35m; a steal in today's market. The club have announced that the Brazilian winger has a signed a contract which will keep him in Turin until 2022.

"One year after joining Juventus on a temporary basis from Bayern Munich, the Brazilian now has a deal at the club lasting until 2022 after the Bianconeri took up the option to make his services permanent following an eye-catching first season in black and white."
