3 reasons why Chelsea should not give Diego Costa a new contract – agreed?

 Atletico Transfer Ban


If the Mirror are to be believed, Chelsea’s main motivations for giving Diego Costa a new deal surrounds supposed interest from Atletico Madrid.

In fact, the Mirror are suggesting that the Spanish giants have continually enquired about the availability of Costa since his arrival in London – and that, you would think, is a reasonable reason for Chelsea to want to cement his long-term future.

However, Atletico Madrid are currently on a 2-window transfer ban; and that means that at present, they are unable to buy any players.

That completely negates the argument to give him a new deal to end their interest. It would make much more sense to wait until their ban is close to expiry – and then Chelsea can reassess the situation.
