Douglas Costa, the Brazilian midfielder, is on the agenda of LA Galaxy and Cruz Azul. The MLS and Liga MX teams, respectively, have shown interest in signing the former Juventus and Bayern Munich player.
Costa, 31, was on loan at Gremio from the Italian side Juventus. But following Gremio's relegation to Serie B last month, the club is facing a major cut in finances, and Costa is close to ending his loan.
The LA Galaxy needs to reinforce their midfield in light of the losses they have suffered in the winter transfer window and the first candidate to fill that position is Brazilian Douglas Costa, who currently plays for Gremio.
ESPN reported that the MLS team has made a bid for Costa as Gremio needs to relieve its coffers after its relegation to Serie B, and the Galaxy's proposal would be very tempting.
LA Galaxy team lost Jonathan Dos Santos to America and Sebastian Lletget in a trade to the New England Revolution and have only added Marky Delgado from Toronto.
According to Brazilian media reports, Gremio is considering offers, including one from Cruz Azul.
It is no secret that Cruz Azul are looking for a striker after the departure of Jonathan 'Cabecita' Rodríguez and have tried several options, without success. The arrival of Douglas Costa would not only strengthen Juan Reynoso's squad but would also be a perfect end to an intense transfer market.
Teams Douglas Costa played for
Douglas Costa's best period was with Shakhtar Donetsk. In Ukraine, he played a total of 203 games, where he scored 38 goals and provided 40 assists. Later with Bayern Munich, he played 97 games with 15 goals and 30 assists, while at Juventus he scored ten times and assisted another 21.
Finally at Gremio, Douglas Costa had a total of five goals and eight assists in the 58 matches he played. His arrival in Liga BBVA MX would immediately turn the spotlight on him.
