Atletico Madrid increasingly desperate to seal transfer of Chelsea’s Diego Costa

Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone is pushing for his club to strike a deal for
Chelsea striker Diego Costa after missing out on his other top transfer targets this summer.
The Spain international is said to be valued at just £30million by the Blues, which is considerably less than other recent reports claimed as it was thought he could cost as much as £60m .
With Atletico previously only offering as little as £22m for Costa, a deal may now be in sight if Chelsea have lowered their demands, with the club known to be keen to get the 28-year-old off their books.
Antonio Conte informed Costa that he wasn’t in his plans for next season by text message earlier this summer, prompting the player to speak out about and putting the Premier League champions in a weak negotiating position.
