Atletico President👔 Enrique Cerezo has asserted that the Rojiblancos are not planning to move for Diego Costa⭐ anymore, despite previously claiming the opposite. Cerezo said🔈, "There was never a Diego Costa transfer saga. Diego has a contract with Chelsea and is part of manager Antonio Conte's squad. We are on friendly terms with Chelsea and see them as our friends."
Seeing that Cerezo had openly stated that they were close to bringing🤔 Costa back to his former club, this could only mean that Chelsea refused✋ to sell their star forward. Atletico had recently reinforced👍 their attack with the capture of Kevin Gameiro. Atletico have spent big this transfer window🔁 to secure the services of Sime Vrsaljko, Nicolas Gaitan and Gameiro.
