Bayern Munich star Douglas Costa has put Premier League clubs on alert after revealing his desire to play in England. According to The Daily Mirror, the Brazilian winger has admitted that he could leave the Bundesliga leaders in the near future after receiving contact from clubs around the world, however he has stated it would have to be a very good offer to lure him away from the Allianz Arena.
Speaking to Bild, he said: “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.”
“It is not my idea to leave Bayern now. I want to win titles. I like Bayern and I think I can win titles with Bayern to reach the highest technical level of my career, to go for the Ballon d’Or, the Champions League, the Club World Cup.”
“I want to win all sorts of titles and then the World Cup with the Brazilian national team. Then we will think about new markets. I cannot comment on names, but there are contacts with teams from England, Spain and also France.”
Costa did admit that the Premier League was an attractive prospect, as it is the greatest league in the world. I am sure that any of the Top 6 in the Premier League would jump at the opportunity to sign him.
“I think England is one of the biggest soccer leagues in the world – fantastic! Just like Spain’s La Liga also, with big players, big teams,” he said.
“The language is easier in Spain, but England also has great players. For me it is the best league in the world.”
Maybe it’s just sheer speculation, maybe it isn’t, but with the lure of Spain and the Premier League i’m sure Costa will be on the move shortly.
