Mon 08 March 2021 | 16:04

Costa is currently a free agent looking for a club in Europe.

Goal confirmed that

Diego Costa

, the former

Atletico Madrid striker

, has received a salary offer of 3 million euros per year from Benfica.

Costa, who terminated his contract with Atletico Madrid in December, is still looking for a new club. Benfica intend to strengthen their attacking line for the rest of 2020-2021 season by attracting Diego Costa.

Now

Goal

has confirmed that they have offered Costa €3 million in annual salary for two seasons. On the other hand, given Benfica's extraordinary history, Costa is also eager to finalize the transfer.

While Manchester City, West Ham and Tottenham were looking to sign Costa in January, the Spanish international striker turned down all three offers. Sao Paulo and Palmeiras were also among the teams that offered the Brazilian-born striker, but he intends to continue playing football in Europe.

He has scored 181 goals in 474 appearances, the last of which came from the penalty spot in Atletico's shirt against Elche in December.
