Atletico Madrid striker and one of the most wanted players in the Europe in this moment, Diego Costa, pledged his future to Atletico by signing a new, lucrative contract that sees him staying in Madrid until 2018.
Although the media reports was saying that Costa will leave Madrid in the near future, Atletico board sent a huge statement to all interested clubs by signing a new contract with a great striker.
Jose Luis Caminero, Atletico sports director, told the press that Costa is going nowhere.
“Costa will stay at Atletico. He sent a note to all interested clubs with this signing. He is happy in Madrid, we don’t want to sell him. Big clubs will have to look for reinforcements elsewhere”, Caminero stated.
However, many people think that this is only a way for Atletico to secure Costa stays until the end of the season, and maybe, when the time for the selling comes, to get more money with installing heavy buy out clause into his contract.
