Sky Sport Italia, Gazzetta Dello Sport and many other Italian channels and papers are reporting that Douglas Costa is a Juventus player.

Granted, a medical is still pending, but the various news channels and papers all agree that the Bianconeri have reached an agreement with Bayern Munich.

While the figures vary, each outlet agrees that the Brazilian winger will initially join Juventus on loan for a approximately €6m loan with a set obligation to buy for €40m.

Sky Sport journalist Gianluca Di Marzio reported last night that Costa was effectively a Juve player while Gazzetta and CorSport both suggest that Costa could travel to Turin this evening.

Bayern Munich confirmed that a deal was close yesterday and previous reports all stated that Costa had already agreed terms with Juve.

Beppe Marotta is expected to travel to Germany along with intermediary Giovanni Branchini today to personally finalise the deal and Costa is expected in Turin on Wednesday to complete his Juventus medical and sign for the club.
