    Atletico Madrid have confirmed that striker Diego Costa’s contract has been mutually terminated for “personal reasons.”

    The club’s website says the termination was signed today on a contract that was supposed to have run until June 30th 2021.

    This was his second stint with the club after joining them in 2006 at age 17.

    Costa, who has been placed on a backburner behind the likes of Luis Suarez and Joao Felix, has been linked with Arsenal and Wolves.

    If signed by either club, it would signal a return to England where he scored 59 goals for Chelsea in 120 games between 2014 and 2017.
