I like Douglas Costa, it's such a shame that things didn't really work out with Bayern.

My impression is that injuries and the change of coaches affected his performance. I´m not a Bayern fan but looking from afar, it seems that Ancelotti values the dressing room chemistry and Ribéry and Robben would always gain more playing time than Douglas Costa, and that meant Costa never really got a sequence to shake off the rust after his injury. 

He´s doing well for Brazil, so I believe his season does not represent a serious decline, it was more of a anomaly. Good signing for Juventus.

Will be a great addition to Juve's squad. The real question here though, is that with Ribery aging why do Bayern even want to get rid of this guy? To make room for Alexis Sanchez could be a possibility

But this guy was quality under Guardiola at Bayern, and this move to Juve could be his chance to rejuvenate his career, as he hasn't flourished much under Ancelotti.

The injuries contributed. The main complaint i would have is his perceived lack of effort on the pitch. The last half the season he never looked to put an effort in or care to fight at all.  I think the writing was on the wall when he tried to push for a higher wage and saw nothing but stiff arms for it. If hes motivated i think Juve will have done quite well, either way his time in Munich was over and im happy with the amount.
