Ex-Chelsea striker, Diego Costa 'reaches agreement to join Benfica after being released by Atletico Madrid


Ex-Chelsea striker, Diego Costa

Former Chelsea striker, Diego Costa has reportedly reached an agreement with 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 spent the last three months looking for a new club. 


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


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


The money being offered is said to be impressive for a player that fell out of favour at the Wanda Metropolitano last year.


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.
