Diego Costa’s possible farewell to Madrid has been considered in recent weeks, especially after the arrival of Luis Suárez, coming free of charge from Barcelona. Atlético would like the Brazilian to leave to give a new face to his attack, and the player himself would not want to go on a collision course, being open to proposals to leave, according to the sports daily.
“As” claims that his manager, Jorge Mendes, has been looking for options in the market for the center forward for a few days – and the one that would be emerging with more force would be PSG. The French would be interested in the arrival of the 31-year-old, who would come free of charge. The obstacle, however, would be his high salary, which would force Thomas Tuchel’s team to part with another athlete to make room on the monthly payroll.
If Diego Costa finds a good option and leaves Atlético, the club would be ready to hire another striker. And the arrangement could be with a strong name: Edinson Cavani. Without a club since he left PSG, the Uruguayan could join old partner Luis Suárez in the Spanish capital. He has been training to keep fit in his homeland.
“As”, however, says that other options are on the radar of Atlético de Madrid, with a younger profile. Among them would be Milik, from Napoli; Maxi Gómez, from Valencia; and Raúl de Tomás, from Espanyol.
