Costa rejects huge deal from EPL club to make Atleti return

Diego Costa rejected a huge offer from English Premier League club to make a return to Atletico Madrid.

Everton offered more to Diego Costa but he snubbed the Toffees in favour of his former club and according to the report in Marca, the Toffees were ready to splurge a massive €75m bid for the Spanish international, which would have made Chelsea very happy, considering how offers for the Brazilian native from China were in the region of €80-90m. 

Costa had also turned down similar offers in order to move back to his former club who he won the Spanish La Liga with and also guided them to the Champions League finals.

The Spanish international scored 20 Premier League goals last season for the Blues and helped Chelsea to clinch the title.

The striker will be able to train with Atletico Madrid but will need to wait until January before he can be enlisted to play any match because of Atletico Madrid’s transfer ban
