Striker is free on the market
After the termination of his contract with Grêmio, Douglas Costa came very close to agreeing with his newest club in Brazilian football. The player is free in the market and will have a price tag of zero, and the club only has to pay his salary.
At the start of the season, in an Instagram post, Douglas Costa confirmed that he would stay at Grêmio and apologized to the tricolor gaucho fans, as the striker was in the team that relegated Grêmio to Serie B.
Days later, confirmation came that Douglas Costa had reached a termination agreement with Grêmio and he would no longer play in the club’s colors. However, the reason was not disclosed, but it concerns the athlete’s salary, which is quite high by the standards of the second division.
Douglas Costa and Flamengo
According to information from journalist Giuliano Brito, Douglas Costa has sent an agreement with Flamengo and is about to have his name announced by the Rio club. The player and club have been in advanced talks to seal a deal.
Also, according to the journalist, Douglas Costa has already exchanged messages with the Flamengo players (David Luiz and Gabigol), talking about the Brazilian national team, how the club is and everything else about the Flamengo club.
With Michael gone, it’s absolutely true that Fla is in the market for names and Douglas Costa may have that opportunity to solidify himself.
