Diego Costa’s move to Chelsea is not yet a done deal but the Spanish giants have confirmed contact has been made.
Cerezo confirmed Chelsea have made contact but have not agreed to meet the buy-out clause for the Brazilian-born striker.
The forward has long been linked with a big-money move to join Jose Mourinho at Chelsea, and despite reports that a deal had already been done, Cerezo maintains the deal is far from complete.
As quoted on the Sky Sports website, he said: “We don’t know anything about Costa, all we know is that Chelsea have made contact but we haven’t received any money or anything else yet.
“Until we receive the money from his buy-out clause, he remains an Atletico player.”
