Diego Costa is not thinking about a move away from Atletico Madrid, according to the club’s sporting director.

The reigning Premier League champions have been linked with a move for Atletico duo Diego Costa and Koke in recent weeks after the club’s poor start to the domestic campaign.

Costa, 25, has been in sparkling form this term, netting 19 goals in 20 games in all competitions for Diego Simeone’s men.

With United looking to strengthen in January, Moyes was reported to have attended a Champions League clash earlier this month to eye up the forward.

But Atletico sporting director sporting director Jose Luis Caminero is confident that Costa isn’t thinking about leaving the Spanish capital.

“Right now Costa does not think of leaving, he is contracted to Atletico,” Caminero told La Marca.

“He has renewed with us which is important. He has shown that he wants to continue at this club.”

Costa has scored 39 goals in 64 appearances for Atletico after returning from a season-long loan at Rayo Vallecano in 2012.
