Diego Costa asks Atletico Madrid to terminate his deal

Atletico Madrid striker, Diego Costa, has informed the club of his desire to leave the club ahead of the January transfer window, Goal reports.

Costa has also asked the LaLiga side to terminate his contract.

The Spain striker has had a tough time since returning to Atletico from Chelsea in 2018, with his appearances and productivity limited amid injuries.

Costa has made only seven appearances in La Liga this season, with two goals to his name.

He has now decided to leave well ahead of the expiry of his contract in the summer of 2021.

Diego Simeone’s side are open to the prospect of letting the 32-year-old striker move on, provided suitable replacement cover can be found in the January transfer window.
