Douglas Costa ends strife at Shakhtar to get Bayern Munich chance

Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich have bolstered their attacking options with the capture of Douglas Costa.

Douglas Costa will work under Pep Guardiola at Bayern Munich just a few months after publically stating his desire to unite with his bitter rival, Jose Mourinho.

Back in January, when trying to persuade Shakhtar Donetsk to sell him to Stamford Bridge, the Brazilian midfielder hailed the Special One.

"To play at Chelsea is a dream for any player. What catches my eye is the coach. He is very intelligent and has been victorious wherever he went," he claimed.

He has been desperate to leave Ukraine...

Why don't teams spend big on buying defenders in the transfer window?

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop and Mark Donaldson weigh in on Petr Cech's imminent move to Arsenal and discuss why goalkeepers aren't all that expensive.

June is a deceptive month for football. This is not, perhaps, immediately apparent on the back pages of newspapers and homepages of websites, where the fevered talk of swoops and deals and big-money signings begins almost as soon as the last ball of the season is kicked. By and large, though, June is a month of positioning and posturing, one colossal stand-off as everyone waits for everyone else to move.

Still, it is possible to discern certain patterns in the transfer market so far. First and...

Terry, Walcott, Carrick and Van Persie available in 2016 as deals expire

The transfer window is open and the ESPN FC crew look at the possible ins and outs in the Premier League.

The summer transfer market is already being shaped by players whose previous clubs proved unable or unwilling to keep them when their contracts were expiring.

Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard, Didier Drogba, James Milner, Danny Ings and Glen Johnson have all moved on this summer and the window next year will be no different.

As a host of players enter the final year of their deals, coveted footballers can find themselves in an even more enviable position when they are able to enter the market without...

Top 5 transfers in Europe: Martinez, Mandzukic, Imbula, Kondogbia, Castro

The ESPN FC experts discuss Carlos Bacca's possible transfer from Sevilla to AC MIlan, where Alejandro Moreno believes Bacca will be impressive at Milan.

If there's one thing we can be sure of in this summer's transfer window, it's that the Premier League will continue to be the epicentre of big business. The recent transfer of Dimitri Payet from Marseille to West Ham, for example, showed how uneven the playing field is, with a star leaving one of Europe's biggest traditional names for a reported salary of £65,000-a-week that the French giants couldn't dream of paying.

Yet there's plenty going on elsewhere in Europe. Italy is the biggest spender...

Premier League transfer deals already done: Depay, Cech, Payet, Milner

The Premier League's transfer window is now open, but what deals have already been done? You can see all the confirmed transfers, but here is a list of some of the biggest movers already.

NB. Any transfers "agreed" but still subject to a medical or work permit do not figure, like that of Liverpool's move for Roberto Firmino.

Memphis Depay - PSV to Man Utd - £25 million

Louis van Gaal acted quickly to snap up Dutch winger Depay before PSG made their move.

Petr Cech - Chelsea to Arsenal - Undisclosed

Arsenal landed a coup with the reported £11 million signing of Petr Cech fro Chelsea.

Dimitri Payet - Marseille to West Ham - Undisclosed

West Ham reportedly paid over £10 million to land the French midfielder.

James Milner - Man...

Success of Demba Ba and Mohamed Sissoko crucial for Shanghai Shenhua

Demba Ba is the latest player to seek success at Shanghai Shenhua.
Demba Ba is the latest player to seek success at Shanghai Shenhua.

How does a football club emerge from sustained chaos? While for most supporters of top European teams this is a question they never need ask, for those elsewhere it is one which emerges with astonishing frequency. A change of owner, president or general manager is often greeted with promises of hope and progress, but invariably little changes until there is meaningful reform at all levels -- and even then success is far from guaranteed.

For traditional Chinese powerhouse Shanghai Shenhua, it remains...
