On Monday morning, the attacker arrived in the capital of Rio Grande do Sul. There were about 15 professional journalists, but no fans. It was the player's own request to land secretly. The official presentation is supposed to take place on Thursday.

Due to the lack of rhythm, Diego Costa must go through a period of adjustment. But the possibility of the player making his Gre-Nal debut on February 25 has not been ruled out.
