Juventus confirmed on Thursday they have activated the 40 million euro ($47 million) purchase clause to make Bayern Munich winger Douglas Costa’s move to Italy permanent.
The 27-year-old initially moved to Turin on loan for six million euros last summer with a 40 million euro option to buy.
And the Brazilian was one of the key players for Massimiliano Allegri as the club wrapped up a seventh straight Serie A title and fourth Italian Cup in a row.
“Juventus have exercised the option for the definitive acquisition of the registration rights of Douglas Costa from Bayern Munich for €40 million to be paid in two financial years,” the club said in a statement.
“Juventus and the player signed a contract of employment until 30 June 2022.”
Juventus added that the German champions could be paid a further fee of one million euros depending on Costa’s future performances.
Costa scored six goals and contributed 14 assists in 47 competitive games during his first season in Italy.
