Atletico Madrid offer Costa to clubs in England, Italy and France but find no takers


Diego Costa Atletico Madrid 2019-20

Atletico Madrid have offered Diego Costa to a number of clubs, Goal has learned, with teams in England, Italy, France and Turkey given the chance to snap up the fiery frontman.

He was a talismanic presence during his initial stint at Atletico, helping them to a domestic title triumph and Champions League final.

At that stage Costa was consideredone of the most fearsome strikers in Europe, with Chelsea signing himduring the summer of 2014.

Three productive years were spent in England before re-joining Atleti, but just 17 goals have been scored ina further 83 appearances for Madrid.

Diego Simeone has given the Brazil-born star plenty of opportunities, but the desired impact has come.With that in mind, and an expiring contract to take into consideration, potential suitors are being sounded out.

Atletico are eager to avoid losing Costa on a free in 2021 and would prefer to find a buyer in the current window - buthis reputation and price tag have taken a considerable hit.

His agent is working with Atletico to find a taker, but no formal interest has been foundyet.That is despite teams in the Premier League, Serie A and Ligue 1 being approached, with possible routes to Turkey and Brazil also explored.

There are other avenues to head down, with the US, Qatar and China not being ruled out – although clubs in Asia now face a high tax rate when it comes to bringing in marquee signings from abroad.

That could further complicate what is already proving to be a drawn-out saga.

The financial implications of Covid-19 mean that clubs around the world have less money to work with in the latest transfer market.
