Diego Costa 'Reaches Agreement' To Join Benfica After Being Released By Atletico Madrid

Former Chelsea striker, Diego Costa, 32, has reportedly reached an agreement with Portuguese side Benfica after the club tabled an offer of a two-year deal worth £5million.


The Spanish international was released by Atletico Madrid by mutual consent in December 2020 and has spent the last three months looking for a new club. 


Mundo Deportivo reports that Costa has been speaking with his some clubs, and even turned down an offer by Ligue 1 side Marseille to join them.


It has been reported that Benfica have offered the 32-year-old £2.6m a season to play for them, and Costa has agreed to the move in principle.


The money being offered is said to be impressive for a player that fell out of favour at the Wanda Metropolitano last year.


Costa is now expected to join Benfica in June, but he is still leaving the door open for a better option and is yet to fully commit to the Portuguese giants.
