Almost Done – £25m Chelsea Target To Complete Transfer This Week

Douglas Costa will be snubbing Chelsea to sign for Bayern Munich. The Brazilian who plays for Shakhtar Donetsk in the Ukraine league. The 24 year old has expressed a desire to turn out for the German side who have already held discussions with Shakhtar concerning him. Chelsea will be ruing their decision not to sign him when they had the chance to.

The premier league champions opted to sign Juan Cuadrado from Fiorentina in the January transfer window and that move turned out to be a disaster. Reports mooted the possibility of Chelsea offloading Cuadrado and going back for their earlier quarry.

However, with Costa intent on a move to Bayern, the blues will have to count their loss. Douglas Costa who is currently on international duty with brazil at the Copa America is hoping to return from the tournament and resolve any issues that might delay his move. Speaking to Sport Bild, Costa didn’t not shy from expressing his desire to move to Germany as he said “Who would not like to play at Bayern?”

Douglas Costa has been marked as a replacement for Arjen Robben at Bayern and both player and club will hope to finalize all necessary paper works to ensure Costa settles down quickly to the task of helping Bayern retain their title and win the Champions League.
