Diego Costa: Clubs have made offers

Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa has spoken of his relief after scoring a vitl penalty during their UEFA Champions League semi-final second leg win over Chelsea on Wednesday.

Diego Costa revealed that he has received offers from other clubs after his 36th goal of the season helped Atletico Madrid beat Chelsea 3-1 at Stamford Bridge to set up an all-La Liga Champions League final against Real Madrid.

Reports in Spain have claimed a 60 million euro transfer to Chelsea has already been agreed, and Colchoneros coach Diego Simeone said in mid-April that his star frontman could be a target for the Londoners.

Speaking after Wednesday's game at Stamford Bridge, Brazil-born Spain international Costa told Sky Sports Italia, in quotes reported by Marca, that potential moves were on the table. But he stressed that he would not decide on his future until the end of the season.

“I feel good at Atletico, I am happy in Madrid,” he said. "We will see what happens. There are offers, but it is too early yet to talk. Now I am just thinking about the end of the season, I want to win the Champions League and La Liga."

Costa, who has scored four and missed four penalties this season, smashed home from the spot early in the second half, giving Atletico a 2-1 lead and a second away goal that seemed to totally deflate Jose Mourinho's side.

The 25-year-old was substituted late on after a clash in the lead up to Arda Turan's clinching third goal.

But he explained: "What I got was just a bang, nothing important. We deserve to be in the final. The team was calm after [Fernando] Torres' goal, and we were tremendous for the whole game."
