The reason “Fans” Man United Happy Diego Costa Back to Atletico
Diego Costa’s drama with Chelsea was officially over. West London club has agreed to release the player to his old club, Atletico Madrid.
The assurance was delivered by the Blues through their official website, Chelseafc.com, on Thursday (21/09/2017). The Premier League defending champion said he had agreed with Atletico for the transfer of the Spanish international.
“Chelsea have agreed on some provisions regarding the transfer of Diego Costa to Atletico Madrid,” Chelsea writes on the club’s official website.
Banderol Costa is estimated at 55 million euros plus 10 million euros as a bonus. It will be the greatest transfer in Atletico history, which of course is happy to get back the attacker who was once his flagship.
Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann celebrated after scoring a penalty goal against Leicester City in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final tie at Vicente Calderon, Madrid on Wednesday (12/4/2017).
Not only is Atletico happy with Costa’s transfer. Manchester United fans were cheered as they saw no advantage behind the transfer.
Man United fans say that Costa’s return to Atletico will launch Antoine Griezmann’s transfer to Old Trafford. The presence of Costa makes Griezmann no longer the only mainstay of Los Rojiblancos in the line of attack.
Griezmann’s position is threatened to open opportunities Man United to get the services of the French star, who had linked with the Red Devils.
In the summer transfer market in 2017, Man United had tried to bring Griezmann but did not reap the rewards. Atletico refused to open the negotiating door as they were undergoing a transfer embargo, which will end in January 2018.
Well, as Costa arrives and ends the embargo, Man United tries to get back in pursuit of Griezmann.
