Diego Simeone is glad about the arrival of Diego Costa, despite his return to the club increasing their attacking options.
Chelsea and Atletico reached an agreement over the transfer of Costa and could cost up to €60 million with add ons.
Costa’s return will add to Atletico’s impressive forward roster of Griezmann, Correa, Gameiro, Vietto and Torres.
Simeone does not see competition as a problem, however, as he believes it will only help the team grow.
“I don’t see it as something problematic,” Simeone told reporters in his pre-match media conference ahead of Sevilla’s visit. “On the contrary – important teams grow because of major players, and important players know that there is competition in the big teams.
“It is clear the club is growing and needs people who know how to compete while thinking about the club and the team.”
