Negredo to replace Costa at Atleti?

Alvaro Negredo has been touted as a replacement for Diego Costa if the forward leaves Atletico Madrid this summer.

Mundo Deportivo cites reports in the English Press that suggest Atletico will turn to the Manchester City striker should Costa be sold to Chelsea.

Negredo only moved to the Etihad Stadium last summer, joining ex-Malaga Coach Manuel Pellegrini at the club in a €20m move from Sevilla.

The Spain international has scored 23 goals in 45 games this season for the Premier League title challengers.
