East Asia China

Douglas Costa would consider China move

Bayern Munich star Douglas Costa has revealed that he would be open to a potential move to China after receiving offers.

The 25-year-old Brazilian winger joined the German Bundesliga champions from Ukrainian outfit Shakhtar Donetsk in the summer of 2015.

Costa has been a superb addition to Bayern both under Carlo Ancelotti and Pep Guardiola’s guidance, but he has not ruled out a future move to East Asia.

“It depends on a few factors, the main factor is the minutes played. Being a parent is a crucial difference within my career project,” he told Bild.

““We got some strong offers from China and also from big clubs from Europe. When the season is over, we will sit down and analyse everything. First of all, I am only focused on ending the season with all the titles I can win.

Chinese Super League have lured Carlos Tevez, Oscar and Axel Witsel to China in the January transfer window, with the likes of the likes of Hulk, Jackson Martinez and Alex Teixeira already playing in CSL.
