Atletico Madrid 'listening to transfer offers' for Diego Costa with Luis Suarez unlikely to link up with ex-Chelsea star

ATLETICO MADRID are reportedly listening to offers for Diego Costa – but the ex-Chelsea star is unlikely to link up Luis Suarez.

The LaLiga giants have been put on red alert after Juventus revealed they would NOT be signing the Barcelona outcast.

Earlier this month, Ronald Koeman revealed Suarez was not in his plans.

Juve quickly made their move, with Suarez even passing the mandatory Italian exam.

But director Fabio Paratici revealed it would take too long to sort his passport and will look elsewhere.

Soon after, Suarez, 33, is claimed to have terminated his contract at the Nou Camp a year early.

Atletico Madrid now look to be the favourites to sign Suarez, beating the Uruguayan's former club, Ajax to a £13.5million deal.

However, it's believed Los Rojiblancos will be forced to sell before they can buy.

Reports in Europe claim Juventus are hoping to take advantage of the situation with a move for Alvaro Morata.

The Spaniard, 27, only made his loan move to the Wanda Metropolitano permanent this summer, from Chelsea.

But Juve are willing to offer a £9m loan fee for the season, with a view to a £42m permanent deal next summer.

Now, AS claim Atleti could actively pursue a move away for 31-year-old Costa.

No club has yet made an offer, but the Spaniards believe he could find a new home in Turkey.
