Mou: Diego Costa is an Atleti player

Jose Mourinho has refused to rule out signing Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa in the summer.

The Spain international has been heavily linked with a switch to Chelsea at the end of the season, with some suggesting that the deal has already been agreed.

The Portuguese Coach though, has failed to confirm or deny whether his men will make a move for the Atleti goalscorer.

“We are not going to be buying and selling and selling and buying,” he told a Press conference.

“We're going to do a couple of critical signings. Is a striker a target for us? Yes, we've never denied that.

“Diego Costa is a good player but he's an Atlético Madrid player so I cannot say much".

The Special One then commented on Thibaut Courtois’ future.

“I prefer to say that he is Atlético Madrid's goalkeeper. I prefer to call him that.”
