Start Diego Costa To Atletico, Chelsea Flood Criticism
Despite the not-so-substantial gains, in fact the transfer of Diego Costa from Chelsea to Atletico Madrid reap a lot of negative comments for the Blues camp. The Premier League defending champions are thought to have blundered by releasing one of their best forward players.
In Costa’s sales, Chelsea really earned huge profits. With a dubious physical condition due to a long absence of training with the team since last season the Blue is in fact still able to sell the 28-year-old attacker with a price estimated at £ 57 million.
In fact, when redeeming its release clause from Atletico three years ago, the funds needed only about 37 million Pounds Sterling alone.
If added to a number of player sales last summer that were fortunately close to 100 million pounds, then Chelsea really found a gold mine in recent months.

Nevertheless the sales of Costa still received negative remarks from the public football. Some of them assume if the striker is famous for the behavior of the bengal is not worth ‘discarded’ because the quality is still so slick. At least that’s the opinion of former Chelsea player and assistant coach Ray Wilkins.
“I would prefer Costa rather than his money. Indeed fortunately doubled but this player really like a monster. He terrorized the defender, made them unhappy, and then scored a lot of goals, “said Wilkins at TalkSPORT.
“Costa is Chelsea’s top player. I would love to see him defend and see (Alvaro) Morata playing off the bench. Although Morata has a better skill but more Costa can make opponents disturbed, “added ex-right hand Carlo Ancelotti, Guus Hiddink, and Luiz Felipe Scolari this.
Not just Wilkins alone who menyangkan Costa departure from Stamford Bridge. Gary Neville who incidentally is a Manchester United legend alone admitted if he prefers the player bleed Brazil than Morata though.
“Honestly I’d rather have Costa than Morata in my team. For now I think it’s the game that’s best suited for England, “Neville told the Daily Express.
“Morata has potential, but Costa is a more feared figure of the opposing camp,” said the man who is now a pundit.
Currently Costa has landed in Madrid to complete all detial transfer to Atletico. Before returning to the arms of Los Rojiblancos, this former Rayo Vallecano has appeared in 120 matches in all competitions with Chelsea and make 59 goals.
