Former Chelsea Striker, Diego Costa Finally Finds His Next Destination After Atletico Madrid Exit

Former Chelsea and Atletico Madrid forward, Diego Costa is expected to be back on a pitch with his next club coming to light.

Costa has not played professional football since last December when his contract with Atletico Madrid was terminated six months early. He only made 7 La Liga appearances in the 2020/2021 season and netted twice.

Brazil top flight giants, Atletico Mineiro have reached a verbal agreement to sign the 32 year old on a one year contract deal worth approximately $3m with possible bonuses.

The Spain international will undergo his medicals in a couple of days to complete the potential move. Costa would act as a catalyst to the fruitful performance of Atletico Mineiro who are currently leading the Brazil Serie A table with 34 points after 15 matches.

Diego Costa had also been earlier linked with Premier League side, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Portugal top league side, Benfica.
