Douglas Costa has arrived in Turin. This can only mean two things, and I don’t think he’s going to be signing with our cross-town rivals, Torino.
Reports have surfaced throughout the day that Costa’s deal was all but finalized, with Gianluca Di Marzio reporting that the clubs had reached an agreement on a 1-year loan at the price of €6 million, with an obligation to purchase at €40 million based on certain conditions. Official values will be released when the transfer becomes (officially) official, following a medical which will likely take place on Wednesday.

If you look closely in the first picture, you can see what is believed to be the back of Beppe Marotta’s head. So Costa has arrived in Turin. And in case you’re still skeptical that this transfer will go through because of oh I don’t know, a certain Axel Witsel or Julian Draxler perhaps, there is also this:

Still not convinced, well how about this from the club’s official twitter account?

Last time I checked, Witsel or Draxler never got to this point, so hey, go ahead and get excited a little. Or don’t. It’s your call. But Douglas Costa is going to be a Juventino, and I’m choosing to get excited about it.
