Diego Costa is leaving Chelsea, and the media have been speculating for months where he might continue his career.
Several Chinese clubs have been in contact with him and offered him a lot of money, but he seems to have different plans.
Namely, he only wants to return to Atletico Madrid. Spanish media say Costa wants to return at all costs, regardless of whether the club has been banned from registering new players by January 2018.
He is even ready to pause for the entire half-season, while the club’s punishment runs out! In that case, Atletico could register him in January.
Chelsea recently announced that they will not give Costa away for less than €56 million, while Atletico is willing to pay up to €35 million for him.
