Diego Costa set for Atleti extension

Diego Costa is set to extend his contract at Atletico Madrid following interest from Liverpool this summer.

The Premier League side had targeted the goalscorer as a potential replacement for the wantaway Luis Suarez.

The 24-year-old however, has no desire to leave Diego Simeone’s side and hopes to sign before the end of this month.

The Brazil international’s current deal at Vicente Calderon runs out in 2015, and according to Marca, the attacker is likely to put pen-to-paper on a new contract until 2017.
