Diego Costa snubs new Atlético offerCosta scored against Chelsea in the Champions League
The Brazil-born striker has rejected a desperate effort from Atlético Madrid to renew his contract, reports El Mundo Deportivo.
The new deal included a substantial increase in salary, and a bigger transfer fee connected to the termination clause in the contract.
Reports in England claim that Costa is close to signing for Chelsea for around £35 million. The London club hopes to complete the deal before the World Cup.
