The pandemic of the Covid-19, causes all competitions in European football to remain suspended indefinitely. With that, all rumors start to show up in the football market, as this situation will hopefully end up soon, and our lives will go back to normal, including for Football teams. This time, the rumors come from the Italian capital, Roma, as Roma will apparently move for Atletico Madrid’s Diego Costa.
According to information coming from the Italian press, the Roman team wants to reinforce its offensive sector. They signed the also Atletico Madrid player, Nikola Kalinic on loan, but he is failing to perform well, and as Atletico Madrid has a lot of options for the final third, the Roman side will go for Costa, who will apparently have to find a new club for the next season.
A possible Diego Costa departure from Atletico de Madrid has already been speculated in the transfer window at the beginning of the season. However, the athlete remained in the Madrid team.
Thus, it is up to Roma to convince the center-forward that they have the best environment to help the Spanish striker to stand out. A proposal is likely to come as soon as football activities go back to normal, and Diego Simeone’s team will probably accept an offer.
At the age of 31, Diego Costa was born in Brazil but acquired Spanish citizenship after some years defending Atletico Madrid. The Spaniard was always a good striker, but also very polemic, with an aggressive and energic style of play. He’s the like who can score a hat-trick and get sent-off in the same match, as he loses control with a certain ease.
Costa could succeed in Italy, especially at Roma, as the Roman side lacks a legend since both Daniele De Rossi and Francesco Totti left for retirement.
