Douglas Costa is on the verge of moving to Serie A, to join Juventus on a loan deal. According to Goal.com, the Brazilian has agreed personal terms with the Italians - including a pre-tax salary of 6 million euros. Only the final flecks of the operation remain to be agreed by both clubs. Juve will pay Bayern 10 million euros for the first season of the loan and will have the option to buy Costa outright for 30 million in June 2018.
