Whilst Chelsea have been touring down under in Sydney, a rather surprising rumour has cropped up regarding our star striker, Diego Costa as there is little else to write about at the moment and we assume the press are bored. Diego Costa to Atlético Madrid is simply not going to happen!
Diego Costa to Atlético Madrid (The Guardian)
The resilient striker, who netted 20 league goals for the Champions this season, is reportedly struggling with life in England, and is considering a return to Atlético. This revelation has seemingly come from the blue, (No pun intended) with Costa’s form on the pitch showing no signs of discontent.
The usual reasons have been cited for his unhappiness, language and the weather being obvious barriers he has yet to overcome. There have also been reports that he split from his girlfriend upon the move to England, and, combined with his disruptive injuries this term, it’s quite easy to sympathise with the forward.
Whilst Costa and Mourinho have quashed the rumours immediately, the Chelsea department which deals with the acclimatisation of foreign stars will have their work cut out to ensure that Costa can focus solely on his football. Another worry is that close friend Filipe Luís could be on his way out, meaning Costa’s isolation could be exacerbated.
FamousCFC.com Chelsea Transfer Rumour Analysis – These rumours are an interesting juxtapose between the striker who exudes strength and confidence on the pitch, and the human being who is homesick and struggling to adapt. Fortunately however, I’m fairly confident that these rumours are being run purely because their sensationalist nature.
There’s very little chance that Costa could leave this transfer window, or indeed during the winter one. However if Costa is still unhappy this time next year, it could be an entirely different story.
