Atletico Madrid has warned Chelsea that they will have to pay big money if they are to have any hope of landing Diego Costa in the summer.

The Blues have been heavily linked with a summer move for the prolific forward, who has scored 24 goals in 29 La Liga games this season.

Costa is valuable. So everyone wants him

Enrique Cerezo

But the La Liga side’s president, Enrique Cerezo, says that the 25-year-old Spaniard is “valuable” to the club.

“He’s been with us for many years. He’s been with many other sides in Spain [on loan], and everywhere he’s been, they’ve spoken well of him,” Cerezo told Marca.

“And that means one thing: that a player is valuable. So everyone wants him.

“He will be one of the top scorers this season and will shine with Spain in Brazil [at the 2014 World Cup], I’m certain.

“He has quality and he deserves this, he’s worked hard to get there.”
