Atletico Madrid Terminates Contract With Diego Costa



Atletico Madrid have reached a mutual agreement with Diego Costa to terminate the Spain international striker’s stay at the club, giving him the opportunity to exit the club as a free agent.

This was confirmed in a statement issued on the club’s official website on Tuesday, which states;

Atletico de Madrid and Diego Costa have reached an agreement for the termination of the striker’s contract, which was to end on June 30, 2021.

The striker asked to leave the club for personal reasons a few days ago and on Tuesday signed the termination of his contract. The club thanks Diego Costa for his dedication during these years and wishes him well in the next stage of his professional career.

Costa who returned to the club from Chelsea in 2018 has only managed to score 12 goals in his 61 La Liga appearances.

The 32-year-old is currently linked with some clubs in the English Premier League.

The former Chelsea forward’s deal with the La Liga giants was set to expire in June 2021 but he has asked the club to end his stay prematurely due to personal reasons.

Costa had struggled with persistent fitness issues ever since his return to Atletico from Chelsea in 2018, with his output in the final third suffering as a result.

The mutual agreement for termination of contract means the 32-year-old will now be able to join a new club on a free transfer in the January transfer window.
