Atletico Madrid deny interest in Chelsea star


Atletico Madrid have denied claims they are interested in Chelsea striker Diego Costa.

Club president Enrique Cerezo moved quickly to dispel rumours they want to bring Costa, 27, back to Madrid.

He told La Sexta: “[I would tell him to] close the door, because it is cold.”

Costa had earlier hinted that he would be keen on a return, thus joining former Chelsea colleague Felipe Luis.

Costa recently told Onda Cero: “You never know – look where Filipe Luis is now. Life is full of surprises.

“I always wish Atletico the best and I always follow them, I support them from afar.”

Costa has seen his future come under scrutiny in recent weeks, including an incident at Tottenham.

He threw a bib in the direction of manager Jose Mourinho after being left out, clearly showing his frustration.
