Bayern Munich[edit]

2015–16[edit]

On 1 July 2015, Bayern Munich announced they had signed Costa[43] for a transfer fee of €30 million. Costa signed a five-year contract.[44][45] The €30 million transfer fee was the fourth-highest in Bayern's history.[44] He was given the number 11 shirt previously worn by Xherdan Shaqiri. He made his debut as a starter on 1 August in the 2015 DFL-Supercup away to VfL Wolfsburg, crossing for Arjen Robben to open the scoring in an eventual 1–1 draw; he netted his attempt in the subsequent penalty shootout, but his team lost nonetheless.[46] Costa scored his first Bundesliga goal in his first Bundesliga game in a 5-0 win against Hamburger SV.[47] On 21 May 2016, Costa scored the winning kick of the penalty shootout against Borussia Dortmund to win the 2016 DFB-Pokal Final and secure a league and cup double for Bayern.[48]

Costa enjoyed a good first season at Bayern scoring seven goals in 43 matches throughout all competitions.[46][49] He started the season in great form and had 12 assists in his first 13 games. Then he picked up a muscle injury, and missed the last four games before the winter break. After the winter break, Costa could not regain his former form.[50] In 27 Bundesliga matches, Costa scored four goals and had 14 assists.

2016–17[edit]

Costa got a new manager when Bayern hired Carlo Ancelotti. He had enjoyed regular playing time under Pep Guardiola and was a regular starter, but Ancelotti preferred Franck Ribéry as the left winger. Costa had a hamstring and knee injuries during the season and played in 34 matches in all competitions. He scored seven goals in those matches and matching his scoring tally from last season and did play nearly 1,400 fewer minutes then the season before.[51] Costa had a fall-out with the Bayern board when he complained publicly about his lack of playing time under Ancelotti. Costa said "I speak to the club often," he said. "We talk about my situation, if I'll stay here or if I have to find another team to play for. I'm not always that happy here. But soon we will find a situation." Shortly before, Bayern president Uli Hoeneß, had accused Costa of attempting to earn himself an improved contract when Costa publicly revealed he was unsure about where his future lay and cited interest from the Premier League, La Liga, Ligue 1 and the Chinese Super League.[52]

Loan to Juventus[edit]

On 12 July 2017, Costa joined Juventus on loan until the end of the 2017–18 season, for €6 million. Juventus has an option to make the move permanent on 1 July 2018, for an additional €40 million fee (plus €1M in bonuses).[53][54][55] On 13 August, he made his club debut, coming on as a substitute in a 3–2 defeat to Lazio in the 2017 Supercoppa Italiana.[56] On 14 October, he scored his first goal for the club in a 2–1 home defeat to Lazio.[57] In his debut season he led the league in dribbles (106) and recorded the second-most assists (14) in Seria A.[58]

Juventus[edit]

On 7 June 2018, Juventus made his loan move permanent, signing Costa to a four-year deal for a fee of €40 million plus bonus.[58][59]

In May 2015, Costa was included in Brazil's 23-man squad for the 2015 Copa América.[61] In the team's opening match, he came on as a substitute for Diego Tardelli and scored a stoppage-time winning goal against Peru, his first for the Seleção. In the quarter-final against Paraguay in Concepción, he replaced former Shakhtar teammate Willian for the final 30 minutes of a 1–1 draw, and then missed in the penalty shootout which eliminated Brazil.[62] On 17 November, Costa scored his second goal for Brazil in 3–0 victory against Peru for 2018 FIFA World Cup qualification.[63]

Costa was initially included in Brazil's squad for the Copa América Centenario, but was forced to withdraw from the squad in late May 2016 after sustaining an injury to his left thigh; he was replaced by Kaká.[64]

On 14 June 2016, then technical director Gilmar Rinaldi for the Brazilian Football Confederation, "shortly after he was sacked", stated that Bayern would let Costa play at the 2016 Summer Olympics.[65]

In May 2018, he was named in Tite's final 23-man squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.[66]
