With Douglas Costa sealing his move to United States Major League Soccer side Los Angeles Galaxy in the January winter transfer window, it has been revealed that he was wanted by a number of other clubs but he eve tuslly decided to leave Europe and move to the United States. Before joining LA Galaxy, Costa left Juventus and joined a Brazilian club on loan where he spent last season. The idea was for him to get more game time away from the Italian Serie A giants as he was finding it hard to do so in Turin. The major reason for that was so he could get more minutes under his belt so getting a new club for him would be easier.
He agreed to sign with Los Angeles Galaxy on an initial six-month loan deal after which a permanent contract of 12 months will then be triggered, making it 18 months in total. The Brazilian winger will be hoping that the move yields results as he wishes to return to his footballing best in a bid to earn himself a call-up to the Brazil national team from head coach Tite ahead of the FIFA 2022 World Cup which will be holding later this year in Qatar.
