Is it possible for Diego Costa to play in Mexico? Rumors have already exploded and fans of Club America are dreaming with that possibility. The arrival of Santiago Solari as the new head coach make them have hope about the possibility of him calling Costa and the signing to happen.
The attacker has just left Atlético de Madrid, club that decided to end his contract after a fight that he had with Nelson Vivas, Diego Simeone main assistant. The attacker will now have to look for a new club to play at with 32 years old and moving for the first time of his career to America could be an option.
In the numbers, America sport advisers have already started to work to know if such a signing is possible. As Costa is a free agent, no purchase is needed, even though he will require a high contract. The best paid player in the league is still André-Pierre Gignac, who earns $4.6 million per year.
The contract of the attacker born in Brazil who plays for Spain national team is about $8 million, what make his signing complicated. Costa was formed in Barcelona Esporte Club and then played for Braga, Penafiel, Celta de Vigo, Albacete, Real Valladolid, Rayo Vallecano and Chelsea.
