No longer indisputable at Atlético Madrid, Diego Costa is tipped to return to the Premier League.
Diego Costa has only six months of contract with theAtletico Madrid. Barring a surprise, it will not be extended among the Rojiblancos. The current trend is clearly towards separation.
The Iberian international could move towards the Premier League, a championship where he has already played between 2014 and 2017 under the jersey of Chelsea. D’après The Sports World, Everton and Tottenham would have it in the viewfinder. At Spurs, he would find his former manager with the Blues, in this case José Mourinho.
Diego Costa also has touches with Istanbul’s Fenerbahçe and Napoli according to the same source. He is therefore not short of requests, although he has only played 7 matches this season (for only 2 goals scored).
Diego Costa relies on his leaders
Diego Costa is now waiting for a sign from his management to know what to do. Recently, in the press, he claimed to be open to any option. “I let the club decide my future, he said. At no time did I want to come into conflict to be a problem here, quite the contrary. I made it very clear to the club. I said if they sold me, if there was a possibility of me transfer, I would leave, if they wanted the dismissal to be free, I would accept that too. I spoke with the club, with the coach, I made it very clear what was going on. I told them that I will continue to fight for my place if the injuries spare me. But if they think I should go then I will, there is no problem ”.
During the current campaign, Diego Costa only played 207 minutes in aggregate for the formation of Simeone. He is only the 20th most used player in Madrid’s squad. His status is much more fragile than the one he had during his first stint at the club (2012-2014).
