Chelsea’s 28-year-old attacker Diego Costa has hinted that he might make a move to France should any such opportunity comes knocking on his doors.
Recently, the Spanish international revealed that he tried to make a move back to Atletico Madrid after a frustrating season under Jose Mourinho. However, the former Atletico Madrid man revived his form this season and is again on the verge of lifting the Premier League crown.
It is quite fair now that his future at the Bridge is uncertain and back in January, it was reported that he was the subject of an interest from the far east investors who were ready to offer a whopping £80m deal and that would have seen Diego earning a salary of £30m-a-year. Right at this very moment, there is no such news of his potential exit, but his recent statement of praising the Ligue 1 clubs will surely alert all the French clubs.
“Marseille have constructed a nice project and PSG, we know, are respected in Europe,” he said.
“Monaco also have a wonderful project and have some great players. Ligue 1 is developing.
“I am very happy at Chelsea but anything can happen in football. If I need to make a change, France is a country where I have never played. So why not?”
Costa, right now, is with Spain and the 28-year-old suffered an injury during a training session. He was forced out of training after with a reported leg and ankle injury and underwent X-rays at the Sanitas Clinic in La Moraleja, but the striker was given the green signal, the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) has revealed. His team will be playing lining up against France on Tuesday and the striker is under observation and will remain with the squad.
