Douglas Costa will sign his contract on Wednesday morning after passing his medical with Bayern Munich on Tuesday, according to BILD. He is due to sign a five-year contract until 2020.

BILD and Gianluca di Marzio of Sky Italia are reporting the transfer fee to be €30 million. That would tie Douglas Costa with Mario Gómez as the third-highest transfer fee in Bayern history, behind just Javi Martínez (€40 million) and Mario Götze (€37 million).

Douglas Costa traveled straight to Munich following Brazil's exit in the Copa America quarterfinals. He scored a goal in four appearances off the bench before missing a crucial penalty in the penalty shootout as Brazil fell to Paraguay. Having just come off the tournament, BILD is reporting he not start training with Bayern until July 11.
