Chelsea striker Diego Costa was linked with a move to the Chinese Super League during the January transfer window but Enrique Cerezo, the president of Atletico Madrid doesn’t believe Costa would move to China.
“They [media] say he will go to China, but Chelsea will not allow him to leave,” Cerezo told Cope radio .
Cerezo however revealed he would love Diego Costa (a player he sold to Chelsea in 2014 for £35million) to return to Atletico Madrid.
“I would love for Costa to return but it’s not easy. He plays for a strong team, a team that is likely to win the Premier League,” he added.
“I don’t think the big teams will allow their top players to leave.”
