No Bids Received From Liverpool For Diego Costa Says Atletico Madrid

diego costa No Bids Received From Liverpool For Diego Costa Says Atletico Madrid

A club official from La Liga club Atletico Madrid has denied that the club has received any offers for Diego Costa despite speculation in the British press that Liverpool have made a £21.8million bid for the Brazilian striker.

According to Spanish newspaper AS, Atletico Madrid have rejected any possibility that the player will leave the club this summer, and that they expect him to play in Spain for the next season. The club have received no offers for Costa from either Liverpool or any other club.

Costa scored 20 goals in 44 games last season in Spain. The Guardian newspaper is claiming that Liverpool’s bid for Costa has triggered the player’s release clause.

Either Atletico Madrid are lying, or the British media have their facts wrong on this story. Which is it?
