The Brazil international was linked with a potential move away from the Serie A champions in the summer after the 28-year-old fell down the pecking order during the 2018-19 season.

Costa has made a decent start to life under Sarri so far to help Juventus ease to victories over Parma and Napoli in their opening two Serie A fixtures.
