Diego Costa insisted on leaving Atlético Madrid last December since his minutes as a starter had decreased. Last year’s departure from the Spanish side hasn’t resulted in what the striker would’ve hoped since he remains without a club.
The Spain international continues to look for a new venture, but it appears as though Costa will not be continuing his career in Europe.
According to MundoDeportivo, the two proposals the veteran striker had to continue in Europe have ended up falling since neither Besiktas nor Benfica will offer a salary that Costa believes he deserves.
Returning to Brazil seems like the most viable option for Costa at this point in his career since the most interesting proposal he currently has is from Atlético Mineiro. The South American club feels very optimistic about reaching a contract agreement with the player.
Nonetheless, if a return to Brazil is out of the question for Costa, he’ll have to lower his wage demands as they’re too rich for some clubs to pay, considering the striker is 32-year-old.
