Atletico Madrid: Diego Costa Wrap Up Deal

Madrid, Spain – Atletico Madrid will wrap up a deal with Chelsea’s striker Diego Costa by the end of the week. The English club have finally agreed to negotiate troubled 28-year-old Spanish-Brazilian international.

The London club is expecting to receive 60 million euros payment for the striker. In addition, the move would become the most expensive in Atleti’s history.

After three months of vacation in Brazil, Chelsea have given up on Costa’s return to Stamford Bridge.

However, despite signing with the Rojiblancos, Costa will not be able to play with the club until January. The transfer window opens until then and Diego Siemeone’s side are currently banned from signing any players until then.

Costa has been included in Antonio Conte’s Premier League squad but it is not expected to play a single game.

Costa left Los Colchoneros for Chelsea after winning La Liga title in 2014. Since, Costa has repeatedly expressed desire to return to Madrid throughout the summers.

With 2018 a World Cup year, Costa will have six months to prove to Spain manager Julen Lopetegui he is worth a place in the squad, should they reach Russia.

In three seasons with Chelsea, Costa has helped the club win a League Cup and two Premier League trophies. In addition, he has scored 20 league goals last season.
