Costa joins Brazilian leaders Mineiro

Former Atletico Madrid and Chelsea striker Diego Costa has signed for

Brazilian league leaders Atletico Mineiro, the Belo Horizonte-based club

announced on Sunday, reports AFP. The 32-year-old arrives as a free agent after his contract with Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid ended last June.

Costa made just seven appearances last season, scoring twice. His last taste of action came on December 22, 2020, when he replaced Luis Suarez in the 87th minute of a 2-0 victory against Real Sociedad in La Liga. That marked the end of his second spell with Atletico Madrid, having spent three years with Chelsea in the middle.
