Atletico Madrid president hints at Diego Costa move


Enrique Cerezo refuses to rule out reunion with striker

Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo has refused to rule out making a move for Chelsea striker and former-player Diego Costa.

The Spaniard left Atletico in the summer of 2014 after agreeing to move to Premier League side Chelsea, and despite a stunning debut season, he is now struggling for form at Stamford Bridge.

As well as problems on the pitch, Costa has seemingly got problems off it, with the Blues fans getting on his back following the sacking of Jose Mourinho.

The striker is one of three players blamed for Mourinho‘s dismissal, with Cesc Fabregas and Eden Hazard the other two being questioned by fans of the West London club.

Costa did return to form yesterday, with a brace against Watford, but his booking in the second-half sees him suspended for the trip to Manchester United.

Due to the worries on and off the field, Costa has been linked with a swift return to Spain, with Atletico keen on resigning him, and when the president was asked about a possible reunion, he failed to rule it out.

Shock Return on the Cards?

Cerezo told Spanish channel RTVE: ”Right now, Diego is a Chelsea player and he has to focus on Chelsea.

“But you never know what will happen in football and sometimes players do return to their former clubs.”

The Filipe Luis saga proves that players can make a swift return to former-clubs, as the left-back failed to settle at Chelsea before returning to Atletico in the summer.
