Diego Costa: Backed to score for Chelsea against Manchester City

Diego Costa is apparently keen to rejoin Atletico Madrid, Asmir Begovic also wants out of Chelsea, while Victor Wanyama is hoping for more Tottenham interest.


Atletico Madrid want to use the £31million they have banked from China for Jackson Martinez to launch a bid to re-sign Chelsea striker Diego Costa, according to the Daily Telegraph.

Radamel Falcao’s proposed return to Atletico collapsed because the Colombian could not pass a medical, the newspaper claims, with a move to China now the 29-year-old’s only hope of ending his unsuccessful spell at Stamford Bridge.

Atletico only ever saw Falcao as a stop-gap signing anyway, it is said, and so will now start the process of attempting to lure Costa back to Spain, with the 27-year-old apparently keen on the idea.
