Enrique Cerezo, Atletico Madrid chairman, hopes to be able to bring Diego Costa back to the Spanish capital in spite of his importance to Chelsea‘s attack.

“I think it’s difficult but as far as we are concerned we would love it if he came back here,” Cerezo told the Daily Mail.

“It’s the Atleti way. We have a magnificent relationship with all ex-coaches and players. I went to see Simeone in Argentina when he was at River Plate, that is the way it is with Costa.” 

“Whether he can come back or not is another thing but the relationship has always been fantastic. He is OK because he is at a good club. I don’t know whether they will be in the Champions League this year.”

Cerezo told Onda Cero last week: “He has a contract with Chelsea, there are many times when, as much as a I want a player, there is a contract.”

“To negotiate with Chelsea can be really tough, almost impossible.”

Filipe Luis has made 24 appearances for Chelsea in all competitions this season

Inter Milan have joined Atletico Madrid in the race to sign Chelsea left back Filipe Luis, according to media in Italy. 

Luis endured a difficult season at Stamford Bridge after not holding down a place in the first team and often being second best to Cesar Azpilicueta at left back.

There has been speculation since the season ended that Chelsea will come to a deal with his former club to take him back to the Vicente Calderon, perhaps as part of a deal which sends attacking midfielders Antoine Griezmann or Koke in the other direction. Atletico left back Toby Alderweireld has also been mentioned but as a potential direct replacement for Luis,

No deals have been agreed thus far and Gazetta dello Sport is reporting that Inter, who have recently signed Miranda from Atletico Madrid and wish to add Luis to its ranks, and says that signing the Brazil international is a priority for Italian giants.

Thibault Courtois in undoubtedly one of the best goalkeepers in the world at the moment and he also is the number 1 keeper at Chelsea. Nevertheless, to become the best, he has had to adapt to training here , which is very different to la Liga in Spain. He said:

“The main difference between the two leagues, is the intensity of the game, corner kicks and crosses into the box. There is more pressure on you as a goalkeeper but I think I handle it well with the technique I have coming from crosses. It’s what I learned back in Belgium.”

“I claimed a lot of crosses this season but there is more aerial contact with strikers. I had to learn that in the beginning but I was aware of it and if you are aware of it in the beginning, you change the chip in your head and you know it will be like that.”
