Villas-Boas on opportunity to sign Costo: I thought it was a joke

Diego Costa is without a club after he left Atletico Madrid by mutual consent earlier in the month.

The Spaniard forced to quit the Wanda Metropolitano, but he doesn’t seem to have been overwhelmed with offers from potential suitors. After all, he remains unemployed with less than two weeks left in the transfer window.

Andre Villas-Boas, who manages Marseille nowadays, has revealed that the Ligue 1 outfit was offered the opportunity to sign the former Chelsea striker on a free transfer, Marca reported.

However, Villas-Boas is quoted by Marca giving his thoughts on the deal, revealing that it was completely implausible for them to pull off – and he didn’t even think it was legitimate at first:

“First of all, Diego Costa earns 16 million [euros] gross every year. It’s the first thing that we should recognise.”

“I received a WhatsApp message from an unknown number telling me that Diego Costa wanted to come to OM. I thought it was a joke.”
