Chelsea reportedly prepare for massive bid from Atletico Madrid


According to the Daily Star, Diego Costa might be on his way back to Spain with the Spanish side Atletico Madrid keen on having him back. Although, a lot of this depends on what Chelsea and Atletico Madrid do in the summer transfer window.

The Daily star reports that Diego Simeone will remain at Atletico Madrid if the club backs him up with big transfers, and he has marked Costa as his #1 target.

Diego Costa had a classic first season at Stamford Bridge, which saw him clinching the Premier League Title in the 2014/2015 season. But he has been nowhere near the form he showed in the title-winning season and the same is to be said for the rest of his teammates.

The Spaniard scored 16 goals and assisted 7 times in his 41 appearances for Chelsea last season. In his absence, due to injuries, Chelsea lacked the finishing up front, as Diego Costa himself is a physical presence in the forward half of the field.

Costa previously confirmed that he is happy at Stamford Bridge and has no desire of moving away from England. But recent reports suggest that Chelsea are tracking their ex-striker Romelu Lukaku, which might be a concern for Costa. Furthermore, if Atletico Madrid do come in with a massive bid for Costa, Chelsea might accept it, as long as a proper replacement is also in the works.



  1. I dnt think that Lukaka is a chelsea material bcz he cant realy do wat we need at this tym i think he deserves those small teams bt nt chelsea we need a strong n quick striker this tym around pipo like Abumeyang frm dortmound and hurry kean is much far better than Lukaku insted ov bringing him bak its better to remain with pato bcz he is a real striker he just needs tym

  2. Costa hes a good player but costa need support forward so that can help costa only costa can not score all the goal so Chelsea need like good forward wise charp forward 2 can score at enytime like drogba i like Chelsea to signing Haguin from napoli

  3. I don’t think D.Costa should leave, he is really good and i really think next season will be much more better.we cannot just sack him like this,but form my point of view the new coach will actually play in a 4-2-4 formation so there will be a need for another striker like Pato which is also a very talented striker, but the new coach can also buy players like Ben Arfa, N’golo kante, a good central defender like Nkoulou from marseille and a prolific srtiker like K.Gameiro from Sevilla because there is no need to waste lots of money for stars while there are also better player waiting to have a chance at Stamford Bridge.To finish i think the coach should really have an eye on the youngsters because they are really promising.

  4. Please Chelsea football club owner Mr Roman Abramovich,please give the new coach Antonio Conte some amount of money to use and buy Antione Griezmann from Atletico Madrid football club,Paulo Dybala from Juventus football club,Denis Suarez from Villarreal football club and Munir El Haddadi from Barcelona football club when the transfer window opens very soon.
