The inactivity of Diego Costa is not a problem for Besiktas

Despite the fact that the Spanish-Brazilian striker accumulates more than half a year without playing, Besiktas would be willing to offer him € 3M per year.


Weeks ago, the chances of Diego Costa arriving in Turkey seemed to vanish due to the disparity of opinions regarding his incorporation into Besiktas himself - while the president was in favor, coach Sergen Yalçın saw no physical guarantees - and the Eagles They seemed to focus on the signing of Diego Godín. But the solo training he has undergone these months seem to have paid off and the Besiktas option has burst back into force. According to the Italian journalist Nicolò Schira, who specializes in the transfer market, the Turkish team would have offered him a two-season contract (until 2023) with a salary of € 3M per year.

The ball is now on the roof of a Diego Costa who, as reported days ago, had been tempted with a return to the Portuguese league. On December 22 of last year, against Real Sociedad, Diego Costa played his last league game with Atlético de Madrid. Diego Costa had a contract until June 30, 2021 with the colchoneros, but days after facing the txuri-urdin team, the colchoneros announced the termination of their contract. Citing family reasons, Costa was left as a free agent to search for a team during the winter transfer market, but more than half a year after leaving Atlético, the 32-year-old forward is still without a team.

Diego Costa will now have to choose between waiting for a more attractive offer in terms of sports or accepting the millionaire contract from the Turks and possibly meeting his former rojiblanco teammate Diego Godín again. In athletic terms, the Spanish-Brazilian, now a free player, left a void in the team of 'Cholo' Simeone that they have been unable to fill. After Costa's departure, Atlético de Madrid joined Moussa Dembélé in the last winter market, on loan from Olympique de Lyon. The French striker also did not catch on in the rojiblancas ranks and the Wanda Metropolitano team is still looking this summer for a footballer to serve as competition and relief for Luis Suárez up front.
