Diego Costa is a man in form at the moment, and as previously reported some days ago Chelsea are ready to tie the Spanish international with a new contract.
Chelsea are keen to extend Costa’s stay in England beyond 2019 – when his current £150,000-a-week agreement is due to expire.
Diego Costa was strongly pursued by his former club Atletico Madrid during the summer, and it’s why Chelsea aren’t ready to take any chances. Spanish daily sports newspaper Diario AS have reported that Chelsea want to extend and improve Diego Costa’s contract in light of interest from former club Atletico Madrid.
Moreover, Antonio Conte is said to be intent on keeping one of his prized assets and warning off Diego Simeone’s Atletico from their former frontman.
AS‘ story is headlined, ‘Blindaje Anti Atleti Para Diego Costa’ meaning, ‘Anti-Atleti Protection For Diego Costa’ in Spanish.
The 28-year-old Brazilian-born Spain international has been in scintillating form for the Blues this season, scoring nine goals in 13 appearances in all competitions.
