Bayern Munich have enjoyed a hugely productive transfer deadline day with three new arrivals at the Allianz Arena, while Manchester United look set for a hectic final few hours. 

Bayern had always looked likely to be active in the last days of the window, with the re-emergence of Callum Hudson-Odoi as a target indicative of their plans. 

But Bayern were unable to lure the England talent away from Chelsea and the German champions subsequently turned their attention to a familiar face. 

Douglas Costa, who previously spent two years with Bayern, returns on a season-long loan from Juventus, who subsequently bolstered their attacking options with Italy international Federico Chiesa. 

Costa, 30, was one of three arrivals, however – Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting secured another move to an elite European club having spent the previous two years with Paris Saint-Germain.

The German-born Cameroon forward previously played for hometown club Hamburg, Nurnberg, Mainz and Schalke in the Bundesliga. 

Bouna Sarr is the other player to join, with the right-back arriving from Marseille and bolstering their defensive options to allow for Joshua Kimmich to take up the mantle in midfield following Thiago Alcantara's move to Liverpool. 

Manchester United are expected to make moves in the coming hours, having already snapped up Alex Telles from Porto, who have also seen Danilo Pereira depart to PSG. 

A deal for Edinson Cavani to join Telles at Old Trafford is reportedly done, while Ousmane Dembele has been mentioned as a target. Similarly, youngsters Facundo Pellistri and Amad Traore are thought to be nearing agreements. 

OLD LADY SPLASH THE CASH

Chiesa is the biggest name on the move in Europe so far, with the Italy winger signing a two-year loan deal at Allianz Stadium which Juve are obliged to make permanent in a deal, one that could eventually earn Fiorentina €60million. 

La Viola have seen several incomings as well, however, with Jose Callejon following defenders Antonio Barreca and Lucas Martinez Quarta in joining the club. 

Roma have managed to offload a few players, with Diego Perotti moving to Fenerbahce and Justin Kluivert joining RB Leipzig – and they are still hoping to bring in defensive reinforcements, Chris Smalling and Antonio Rudiger strongly linked. 

Italian full-backs have certainly been a popular commodity on deadline day, with Matteo Darmian linking up with Inter and Mattia De Sciglio leaving Juve for Lyon.

GONNA TAKE YOU TO THE EIBAR

While Real Madrid and Barcelona appear set for quiet days, the same cannot be said for one of the teams hoping to trouble them in LaLiga this term – Sevilla. 

The Europa League winners have shipped two of their most promising youngsters to Eibar, with Bryan Gil and Alejandro Pozo providing the Basque side with greater depth on the flanks. 

Netherlands-born Morocco international winger Oussama Idrissa joins Sevilla in a reported €13m deal from AZ, while Oranje centre-back Karim Rekik moves to the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan from Hertha Berlin for an estimated cost of €4m. 

They could yet bring in Joshua King from Bournemouth as well.

Madrid's lack of activity does not mean the Zidane household has no news, however, as Luca Zidane has flown the nest and joined Rayo Vallecano on a permanent deal.

Meanwhile, Real Valladolid secured the loan signing of highly rated Benfica winger Jota.

INS AND OUTS AT ARSENAL?

The biggest deal in the earlier part of deadline day in England was Ben Godfrey's transfer from Norwich City to Everton, which could land the Canaries £30m. 

Another young prospect on the move is Matteo Guendouzi. The French talent has fallen out of favour at Arsenal and he has been allowed to join Hertha Berlin for the season. 

In his place could come Thomas Partey, the Atletico Madrid midfielder who has been strongly linked with the Gunners for several months. 

The Ghana international is reportedly set to have his €50m release clause triggered by Arsenal, with Atletico previously making it clear they have no desire to negotiate with interested parties. 

Elsewhere in London, Chelsea have once again loaned out Tiemoue Bakayoko, who after playing at Milan and Monaco in the past two seasons now joins up with Napoli.

Bayern Munich have signed Douglas Costa on a season-long loan deal from Serie A champions Juventus.  

The Brazil international played for Bayern between 2015 and 2017 prior to moving to Juve, initially on loan before joining them on a permanent basis.  

Costa, 30, made 103 appearances for the Bianconeri across all competitions, scoring 10 goals and winning the Serie A title three times, as well as the Coppa Italia in 2018. 

"I am very happy to play for Bayern again," he told the club's official website. "I had a wonderful time in Munich with many successes and I am sure that we will win titles again now."

Sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic added: "Douglas will strengthen us on the outer flanks that are important for our game. We are now very well staffed with Serge Gnabry, Leroy Sane, Kingsley Coman, Jamal Musiala and Douglas.  

"Douglas knows Bayern and will find his way around very quickly." 

During his first stint at Bayern, Costa won two Bundesliga titles, the DFB-Pokal and the DFL Supercup, scoring 14 goals in 77 appearances.  

He becomes Bayern's third signing in two days following the captures of Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting on a free transfer and Marc Roca from Espanyol for a reported €15million.

As for Juve, they are expected to bolster to their attacking options with the signing of Federico Chiesa from Fiorentina before the deadline.

Ousmane Dembele out, Memphis Depay in?

Barcelona want to reunite former Netherlands head coach Ronald Koeman with Lyon captain Memphis Depay.

And Dembele is believed to hold the cards amid Manchester United links.

 

TOP STORY – DEMBELE TO UNLOCK DEPAY TRANSFER?

Ousmane Dembele's exit is the key to Barcelona signing Lyon star Memphis Depay, according to Fabrizio Romano.

Lyon captain Depay has an agreement with Barca, but the LaLiga giants must reportedly first sell forward Dembele before bringing in the Dutchman for a rumoured €25million fee.

Dembele is open to joining Manchester United, who are believed to be eyeing the Frenchman as an alternative to Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho.

United are poised to complete the signings of free agent Edinson Cavani and Porto full-back Alex Telles on Monday's deadline.

 

ROUND-UP

- Goal confirmed Juventus are close to signing Fiorentina star Federico Chiesa. The Italy international is set to join Juve on an initial two-year loan deal, with an obligation to buy permanently for €40million if certain conditions are met.

Juve are free to bring in Chiesa as Douglas Costa prepares to move to Bayern Munich on loan, reports Goal. The 30-year-old previously played for Bayern between 2015 and 2018.

- Sky Sports says Milan and Chelsea are in talks over a loan deal for defender Antonio Rudiger. The Germany international is free to leave Chelsea, with Paris Saint-Germain and Tottenham also reportedly interested.

Andrea Pirlo says Juventus have "clear ideas" over the transfer business they would like to do before the window closes. 

The Serie A champions are reportedly closing in on a deal for Fiorentina winger Federico Chiesa, while several players have been linked with moves away from Turin. 

Sami Khedira, Mattia De Sciglio and Douglas Costa could be on their way out, according to media speculation. 

Juve head coach Pirlo says only time will tell whether there will be any new arrivals or departures before Monday's deadline. 

"If anyone arrives, we will only see him on Monday evening. Fabio Paratici [Juve's sporting director] is working on it, we have clear ideas within the club," Pirlo told the media.

He added: "Khedira, De Sciglio and Douglas Costa are training like all their team-mates. At the moment, they are available to play." 

Pirlo revealed big-money signing Arthur could make his first start when the Bianconeri host Napoli on Sunday after Adrien Rabiot was sent off in the 2-2 draw at Roma last weekend. 

"There is a possibility that Arthur will play from the start and [Juan] Cuadrado and [Gianluca] Frabotta are potential starters,” he said. 

Paulo Dybala could also be promoted to the starting line-up, having been an unused substitute at Stadio Olimpico after recovering from a muscular injury. 

Pirlo said: "Paulo was recovering from an injury and needed a recovery period. We will understand in the next few hours if he can start from the beginning." 

Napoli have won their opening two matches in Serie A and Pirlo expects a big test against Gennaro Gattuso's side. 

"I believe that Napoli, with the arrival of Gattuso, has shown a change of mentality," the former Italy international said. "They are a strong and cohesive team. But we are no different and we know what we have to do."

Jadon Sancho has been tipped to swap Borussia Dortmund for Manchester United.

But the England international remains in Germany and United are growing frustrated.

Could United move on from the Dortmund sensation?

 

TOP STORY – UNITED READY TO PULL PLUG ON SANCHO

Manchester United are ready to give up on signing Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho, according to the Daily Star.

Sancho has emerged as United's top transfer target, but the Premier League giants have been unable to negotiate a deal with Dortmund.

With United and Dortmund apart in their valuation of Sancho, the Red Devils are frustrated and could turn to alternative targets.

Juventus attacker Douglas Costa, Atletico Madrid's Joao Felix and Real Madrid outcast Gareth Bale are possible options.

 

ROUND-UP

- Marca claims Barcelona are contemplating a loan move for Arsenal full-back Hector Bellerin, who left Camp Nou for the Gunners in 2011. Paris Saint-Germain have also been linked, while Barca will only target the Spaniard if they are able to part with Nelson Semedo.

The Jadon Sancho transfer saga continues to ramble on.

Borussia Dortmund insist Sancho will not leave following Monday's apparent deadline, while Manchester United are still eyeing the English sensation.

Will Sancho be gracing Old Trafford in 2020-21?

 

TOP STORY – UNITED STILL TARGETING SANCHO

Manchester United are not giving up on signing Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho, according to reports in the UK.

United were dealt a blow on Monday when Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc said Sancho will remain with the Bundesliga club in 2020-21.

Despite United's frustration over negotiations, the Independent and Goal claim the Red Devils are still pursuing the England international.

 

ROUND-UP

Kai Havertz is closing in on a move to Chelsea, reports the Evening Standard. The Bayer Leverkusen star is "desperate" to join Chelsea following the German club's Europa League exit on Monday.

Andrea Pirlo's Juventus overhaul is underway. Calciomercato and Tuttomercatoweb say Blaise Matuidi is set to move to David Beckham's Inter Miami in MLS.

Maurizio Sarri lauded the "phenomenal skills" of Cristiano Ronaldo, Paulo Dybala and Douglas Costa after Serie A leaders Juventus defeated Genoa.

Stunning goals from Ronaldo, Dybala and Costa ensured titleholders Juve stayed four points clear of scudetto challengers Lazio thanks to Tuesday's 3-1 victory at struggling Genoa.

Dybala broke the deadlock with a fine individual effort in the 50th minute before Ronaldo made it 2-0 six minutes later via a thunderous long-range strike.

Juve substitute Costa then put the visitors out of sight with an equally impressive effort, while Andrea Pinamonti drilled in a 76th-minute consolation for Genoa.

"In the second half we lead thanks to our single players because we scored on three excellent plays by three single men," Juve head coach Sarri said.

"Paulo's [Dybala] great slalom, the outstanding Ronaldo's shoot, incredible for its precision and strength and the sensible touch from [Douglas Costa].

"This is how we solved the match, thanks to our individualities and phenomenal skills. We created the team's assumptions." 

Sarri and Juve were heavily criticised following the coronavirus break, which saw the Italian champions go back-to-back games without scoring, including in their Coppa Italia final defeat to Napoli.

Ronaldo was also scrutinised but Juve have now won three consecutive matches to be top of the table with nine fixtures remaining.

The five-time Ballon d'Or winner equalled his tally from last season across all competitions with his 28th goal in 2019-20, while he has scored 14 goals in 2020 – more than any other Serie A player this year.

Sarri added: "After the lockdown I made an assessment: I said that something changed. Then everybody almost made fun of me because we lost the Coppa Italia on penalties.

"The truth is that once we improved our condition we started paying better this kind of football. This due to our condition that's getting better after the lockdown."

Juve are back in action against city rivals Torino on Saturday.

Manchester United, Liverpool, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich… take your pick.

While Barca are aware it will be difficult to prise Martinez to Camp Nou, the LaLiga champions view Icardi's transfer positively.

Chelsea are leading the race to sign Barca outcast Philippe Coutinho, according to the Daily Express. Coutinho has spent the 2019-20 season on loan at Bayern but the German giants opted not to exercise their transfer option. Now, Chelsea are prepared to bring the former Liverpool star back to the Premier League on loan. Tottenham have also been linked.

RB Leipzig's Timo Werner is the first name on the list, which also includes Arsenal star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, United forward Anthony Martial, Madrid striker Luka Jovic and Victor Osimhen of Lille.

Douglas Costa is set to miss the first leg of Juventus' Champions League last-16 tie against Lyon due to injury.

The winger sustained hamstring damage in Juve's shock 2-1 Serie A defeat to Hellas Verona on Saturday.

Following tests by the club's medical staff, Costa is now expected to be out of action for between 15 and 20 days.

It means the 29-year-old is unlikely to be fit for the trip to Lyon on February 26, while he is also a doubt for the top-of-the-table clash with Inter on March 1.

Costa will also miss Juve's Coppa Italia semi-final first leg with Milan on Thursday, as well as Serie A games at home to Brescia and away to SPAL.

Injuries have blighted much of Costa's time in Turin, the Brazil international having only started five league games under Maurizio Sarri this season.

Matthijs de Ligt is a doubt for Juventus' clash with Atletico Madrid in the Champions League after suffering a dislocated shoulder in Saturday's 3-1 win over Atalanta.

Team-mate Douglas Costa will be sidelined for the Atletico game because of a thigh strain, Juventus indicated.

Victory in Bergamo was the Bianconeri's fifth in a row in all competitions and they are top of Serie A, one point clear of Inter, but the loss of De Ligt on top of Costa's absence would be a blow to head coach Maurizio Sarri.

Centre-back De Ligt has started 10 of 13 domestic league games this season, with Giorgio Chiellini's knee injury thrusting the €75million signing from Ajax into the spotlight.

Sarri will also monitor the fitness of forward Federico Bernardeschi, who was replaced after 26 minutes against Atalanta having suffered a bruised chest.

A statement on the official Juventus website said: "Following diagnostic tests carried out this morning ... it emerged that Matthjis de Ligt suffered a dislocated right shoulder in yesterday's match and has now began the appropriate therapies and recovery.

"Therapy and recovery also for Federico Bernardeschi, who suffered a bruise to the right hemithorax.

"Douglas Costa suffered a low-grade lesion of the semitendinosus muscle of the right thigh and has started rehabilitation treatment."

Juventus said that in winger Costa's case, it would take around 15 days for him to fully recover.

Douglas Costa revealed Maurizio Sarri told him just "to enjoy the game" before he came on and scored the winner that sent Juventus into the Champions League last 16.

The Bianconeri booked their spot in the knockout phase with a 2-1 win at Lokomotiv Moscow, though they needed a brilliant 93rd-minute goal from Costa to get the three points required.

Aaron Ramsey put Juventus ahead in the third minute - poking in on the line after goalkeeper Guilherme had spilled Cristiano Ronaldo's free-kick back towards his goal - but Aleksey Miranchuk soon cancelled out the Wales international's opener.

Ronaldo was frustrated in his attempts to break a Champions League record by scoring against a 34th different opponent, yet Costa was able to find a way through, weaving through some desperate tackles and slotting a finish between Guilherme's legs following a one-two with Gonzalo Higuain.

Asked by UEFA.com what Sarri had said to him before he came on with 20 minutes to go, Costa replied: "He said I just have to enjoy the game and help my team-mates to the victory. I did that."

It was Costa's first goal since January, with injury problems restricting the 29-year-old to only four Serie A starts since January.

"It was a really hard game but we played very well," added the former Shakhtar Donetsk winger.

"It is very cold here but my team-mates were amazing. We kept calm and in the end we scored the second goal.

"I played a lot of years in Ukraine. I was ready for this game.

"This was a really important game because I have been out for a long time but I have come back and helped the team."

It was far from a vintage performance by Juventus, summed up by Ronaldo failing to score from any of his eight shots - as was the case the previous time Juventus played Lokomotiv.

Yet captain Leonardo Bonucci, who cleared off his own line before Costa's winner, was pleased with the spirit his side showed.

"I think our team adapts well to the kind of football that is needed in every situation," the defender said.

"We play the football our coach loves most of the time but we are also ready to suffer together when we have to."

Lokomotiv came away empty-handed and former Juventus loanee Benedikt Howedes admitted it was a moment of magic from Costa that proved to be the difference.

"The goal was because of the individual quality that Douglas Costa has," he added.

"We deserved more today but sometimes this is the way of football. Sometimes the individual quality wins."

Douglas Costa sent Juventus through to the last 16 of the Champions League with a brilliant 93rd-minute winner in a 2-1 away victory over Lokomotiv Moscow.

The Bianconeri were ahead after just three minutes when Aaron Ramsey nudged the ball over the line after goalkeeper Guilherme had spilled Cristiano Ronaldo's free-kick back towards his goal.

However, Lokomotiv soon hit back through Aleksey Miranchuk and Guilherme denied Ronaldo twice in the second half as the Portuguese attempted to set a Champions League record by scoring against a 34th different team.

It was not to be Ronaldo's night as he was replaced with nine minutes to go, yet Costa stepped up to be the hero, weaving in off the left wing and finishing after a one-two with Gonzalo Higuain.

Danilo has returned to full training with Juventus after recovering from a thigh injury

The 28-year-old, who joined from Manchester City in August, was forced off during the 2-1 win at Brescia on September 24.

However, the club announced Danilo took part in Wednesday's session at Juventus Training Centre. He may now be involved in Saturday's home league clash with Bologna.

Aaron Ramsey, who missed Wales' Euro 2020 qualifiers against Slovakia and Croatia because of a slight muscle injury, also took part in light training.

Right-back Mattia De Sciglio and winger Douglas Costa are on personalised training programmes, Juventus announced on their website, while Rodrigo Bentancur and Miralem Pjanic were granted an extra day off following their international exertions.

Juventus are top of Serie A after making a seven-game unbeaten start to the campaign.
