Costa signed a deal which will keep him with the serial Serie A champions through the 2021-22 season.

Since arriving in Europe at Shakhtar Donetsk, Costa has won four league titles in Ukraine, two in Germany, and this year’s scudetto in Italy. Only in 2014-15, his final year at Shakhtar, did he miss out on a title.

Costa will represent Brazil at the World Cup.
