Italian Serie A champions Juventus announced they have loaned Brazilian Douglas Costa from German football giants Bayern Munich for €6 million ($6.85 million).

The Italian club said on its website the former Shakhtar Donetsk player has signed a one-year loan contract, with a purchase option of €40 million ($45.67 million), reports Efe.

Juventus has to pay the first $6.85 million within seven days, and they can then sign the Brazilian with a long-term contract if they pay $45.67 million before the end of June 2018.

The 26-year-old winger is the second deal for Juventus this transfer window, after Uruguayan Rodrigo Bentancur joined the Serie A champions from Argentinian Boca Juniors.
