A few weeks ago, We already told you the interesting offer that Diego Costa had on the table of Benfica
. The Portuguese club wants to strengthen its attack for next season, and has thought about the former player of the Atlético de Madrid, who continues without a team since at the end of December, he decided to leave the mattress entity.
He returned to Brazil, to his native Lagarto, from where he listened to some proposals. None seduced him. It was also offered to some team, such as the Olympique de Marseille, but the French said ‘no’. At 32 years old, Coast he has not lost his calm or hope, and his agent, Jorge Mendes, has taken it very seriously.
That is where the option of Benfica, With which Mendes works frequently. The incarnated proposal was a three million premium for the signing and another three for each of the seasons signed. A more than interesting offer considering the devaluation that the forward has starred in in recent years.
Well, as MD has learned, there is already an agreement in principle for Costa to play for Benfica next season. The option greatly seduces the Spanish-Brazilian, who would continue to play in Europe, in an important club, and in a league that he already knows and from which he made the jump to Atlético de Madrid.
For its part, the Portuguese team would have a media signing that would excite its fans and with a player who, if he is physically well, can still contribute a lot in the championship of the neighboring country.
As we say, there is a principle of agreement between the parties so that as of June, Diego Costa joins the discipline of the Benfica. It will be his last opportunity to return to his jurisdiction, in a team, that of the Portuguese capital, which is now third, three points behind Porto, and far removed from the leader, the Sporting from Portugal, with 13 more points.
If you don’t change your mind, something that may happen when it comes to him, Diego Costa will play for Benfica next season.
