Ex-Chelsea striker, Diego Costa ‘reaches agreement with new club after being released by Atletico Madrid

Former Chelsea striker, Diego Costa is set Benfica after the Portuguese club tabled an offer of a two-year deal worth £5million.

The Spanish international, 32, was released by Atletico Madrid by mutual consent in December and has been without a club.

NEWSCASTARS.COM gathered that Mundo Deportivo report that Costa has been speaking with some clubs, and even turned down an offer by Ligue 1 side Marseille to join them.

However, Benfica have offered the 32-year-old £2.6m a season to play for them, and Costa has agreed to the move in principle.

Costa is now expected to join Benfica in June, but he is still leaving the door open for a better option and is yet to fully commit to the Portuguese giants.
