Rayo Vallecano would have closed the signing of Diego Costa: The Spanish international would return to LaLiga after several years of international success. With his last team, Atlético de Mineiro, he won the Brazilian Cup in 2021.
Rayo Vallecano would have closed the signing of Diego Costa
Rayo Vallecano is going to complete a dream striker with the addition of Diego Costa. The Lagarto striker would join Radamel Falcao, being a vintage attack from one of the capital’s teams, Atlético de Madrid. It would be the return to Vallecas 10 years after his first stage in which he began to stand out.
The arrival of the Spanish international is endorsed by Raúl Martín Presa, as was the case with his future teammate, Falcao. The president has personally taken charge of the negotiations, prioritizing his criteria over that of other areas of the club. As you can see, it is not a consensus signing, although it is expected to perform as Falcao has done.
The contract offered by the Madrid team would be made up of a fixed 1.5 million euros gross for one season, with some bonuses for personal and collective goals. There is the option of a more optional season.
It must be remembered that the Spanish-Brazilian striker has not played officially for more than eight months. His last game of his was played on December 12, 2021, in the final of the Brazilian Cup, lifting the title with Atlético Mineiro. Since then, Diego Costa has been training in Madrid, which he considers his home for the years he was wearing the red and white jersey.
Falcao-Diego Costa, a duo that has already been repeated at Atlético and Chelsea

Diego Costa will be the fifth reinforcement that the Vallecano team undertakes in this transfer market, but it would not be the last. Always taking into account the exits, up to three more reinforcements are counted for Andoni Iraola’s squad, with the priority of filling the positions of central defense and left back
