Douglas Costa has not been a regular in the Bayern Munich team this season and speaking to Eurosport, he has confirmed interest from abroad for his services at the end of the season.

“I cannot comment on names, but there are contacts with teams from England, Spain and also France. But we respect Bayern. First we want to get together with them and look at what they think of it, and then we make a decision,” he told Eurosport.

“I am still under contract with FC Bayern until 2020, I have three more years. Of course, football is a business, Bayern simply has to accept a bid and the others pay what they have to pay.

“I think England is one of the biggest football leagues in the world – fantastic! Just like Spain’s La Liga also, with big players, big teams.

“The language is easier in Spain, but England also has great players. For me it is the best league in the world.”

The 26-year-old impressed with Shakhtar Donetsk for nearly five years prior to a £25.5m move to Bayern Munich in July 2015 where he immediately became a key contributor to the Bundesliga side.

However, this season Costa has started just eight Bundesliga games this season which has clearly frustrated the winger and he could be ready to leave the club if things don’t change.

Costa confirms interest from England, Spain and France which would suggest that the likes of Arsenal, Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Atletico Madrid and PSG could be the clubs reportedly in contact with him over a move.
