Diego Costa Warns Atletico Madrid They Missed Their Chance To Sign Him Back
The Spaniard was keen on returning to Madrid last summer but a lack of patience during negotiations led to him staying.
Costa suffered a dreadful run in the 2015/16 campaign and wanted Atleti to make an offer for him, the club were open to the deal but lack of patience cost the deal.
Although, he has received huge offers from China, his future looks set in London for the time-being.
“Atletico knows I have a special feeling for the team, I lived the best moment of my career there. El Cholo [Diego Simeone] knows it wasn’t impossible for me to come back to Atletico.”
“The relationship with Conte didn’t start well because when he arrived I told him I wanted to go to Atletico. Chelsea’s fans love me a lot, even more than in Atletico, figure that!”
“When Atletico had to wait for me they didn’t, there was still a month to go in the transfer market.”
“I’ve done everything to come back to Atletico Madrid but I wouldn’t fight the same to return. When Atletico didn’t wait for me, I had to go to Conte with the tail between my legs.”
“In life anything can happens. I don’t close the door to anybody. Now I’m fine at Chelsea but you never know.”
“I hope Real Madrid doesn’t get Hazard or Courtois.”
