Chelsea target Diego Costa will not be prevented from leaving his current club, Atletico Madrid, should he decide to move on to the next chapter of his playing career.
“I will support any decision he makes. It's natural that Chelsea are interested in him. And that makes me happy because my aim and that of my coaching staff is to see our players improve.” - Diego Simeone on Diego Costa
The Brazil-born Spain international will be a big loss to the Los Rojiblancos squad, but it will be perfectly fine with manager Diego Simeone because it only proves that he is doing his job effectively as a teacher of the beautiful game.
"It will depend on him and what he thinks is the best for his future," said Simeone.
"I will support any decision he makes. It's natural that Chelsea are interested in him. And that makes me happy because my aim and that of my coaching staff is to see our players improve."
"We understand that Chelsea have huge financial power, and if he wants to live off football for the rest of his life, I will have no problem in him going."
"It was like Radamel Falcao, how could I tell him not to go to Monaco?"
