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.”
