Cerezo: "If Costa wants to leave let them pay the clause"

AS AS 04/06/2014 EP

Atlético Madrid president Enrique Cerezo has hinted that Diego Costa has an agreement in place with Chelsea to move to Stamford Bridge but invited the London club to pay the release clause in the Hispano-Brazilian’s contract.

“Diego has the attributes to be the best striker in the world but we will not oblige anybody to play where they don’t want to. If he has an agreement with someone let them come to us and tell us. If he wants to leave, they have to come and deposit the amount of his release clause, which I think is around 42 or 43 million euros,” Cerezo said Wednesday.

The Atlético president also warned potential suitors that Koke “will continue” at the club next season. “He is our franchise player and he will stay with us, so that everybody understands perfectly well. We are not a selling club, we are a stable club. Koke wants to play for Atlético and he will remain a rojiblanco. There is nothing else to add.”

Cerezo also stated his belief that Diego Godín and Joåo Miranda, who have also been linked with the summer exodus from Atlético, will line up in defence next season. “It is very difficult to find a pair of central defenders like Godín an Miranda, almost impossible,” he said. “I believe that, like Koke, they will also stay.”

Of Atlético’s recent signing of Ángel Correa from San Lorenzo, Cerezo opined that “he will be a star in the next few years. People insist on comparing him to Kun Aguero, but I think he is a different kind of player.”
