Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone dropped a big hint about Diego Costa joining back the Spanish side next January.
The Brazilian born striker was left out of Chelsea squad after falling out with manager Antonio Conte and now he’s looking for a new club.
The Colchoneros cannot sign any player in this transfer window for a market ban, but they can do it in January 2018 and that’s when Costa can return to Atletico, as Simeone almost confirmed in a press conference yesterday:
“All the players want to stay, they want to achieve even better goals and get even better,” Simeone speaking ahead of the Audi Cup tournament in Germany.
“Diego Costa? If he comes in January… We can’t say anything about that yet.
“I won’t speak about him now. He is a player of Chelsea. We will talk about the boys who are here now, because we have a late start to the season. That is what is important.”
