JUVENTUS star Douglas Costa has signed for MLS outfit LA Galaxy.
The 31-year-old has reportedly been chased by Man Utd over the past year.
Last January, the Red Devils were close to taking advantage of a Fifa loophole to sign him mid-pandemic.
Then in the summer, United missed out AGAIN as Costa returned to boyhood club Gremio on loan.
The Brazil international has now put pen-to-paper on an deal in the MLS.
LA Galaxy announced on Thursday that they had acquired Costa as a ‘designated player’.
A six-month loan spell at Gremio saw the winger make 28 appearances and score three goals.
Previously with Juventus, Costa played 103 times and picked up THREE Serie A titles in a row.

To rub salt into the Old Trafford wounds, he mentioned two ex-Man Utd superstars as inspiration for the move.
Superstars David Beckham and Zlatan Ibrahimovic have both succeeded on the Pacific coast.
Costa also announced that he was ‘happy to be part of LA Galaxy’.
Meanwhile the Lancashire club have agreed a deal to sell Andreas Pereira to Flamengo, also of Brazil.
