Diego Costa not likely to join Atletico Madrid after transfer ban was upheld

by -

Atletico Madrid‘s transfer ban was upheld by the Court of Arbitration for Sport yesterday, this is the reason why Chelsea striker Diego Costa won’t join Los Colchoneros despite he recently expressed the hope for a comeback very soon.

The Spaniard has admitted that he is only interested in leaving Chelsea for his former club Atletico Madrid, despite Chinese Super League side Tianjin Quanjin had reportedly already set personal terms with the striker.

Then Diego Costa is not expected to be leaving for Atletico this summer, since the La Liga side cannot register new players until January. They can sign new players (as Barcelona did in 2016 with the signing of Arda Turan) but they can’t play until the end of current ban.
