Chelsea transfers: Diego Costa hints at Atletico Madrid future
Chelsea transfers: Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa says he feels good at the La Liga leaders after beating the Blues
Diego Costa has hinted that he could have a future at Atletico Madrid after los Rojiblancos reached the Champions League final thanks to a 3-1 victory at Chelsea.
The Brazilian-born Spain international scored a second-half penalty to firmly swing the semi-final in Atletico’s favour after Adrian Lopez had cancelled out Fernando Torres’s opener at Stamford Bridge.
I know there are offers for me but I feel good here at Atletico
Costa has been heavily linked with a big-money move to the Spanish side’s opponents on Wednesday night as Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho attempts to bolster his attacking options this summer.
The 25-year-old, who has scored eight Champions League goals this term, acknowledged that he has received offers but is happy in the Spanish capital.
“Let’s see, I know there are offers for me but I feel good here at Atletico, we’ll see,” Costa told Sky Italia.
Earlier this week, Atletico president Jose Luis Caminero said he is confident that the club can keep the Brazilian-born star.
“Last year we wanted to consolidate the group of players that we currently have, we renewed the contracts of pretty much all of them, including Diego Costa,” Caminero told Movistar.
“Our minds are set on keeping this group of players together and steadily bring in one or two more, who can reinforce what we’re doing with our project. We want all our big players to stay and we’re planning for next season with him.”
