Atletico Madrid warn Man Utd Diego Costa no Griezmann replacement

Atletico Madrid have no plans to sell Antoine Griezmann, despite the arrival of Chelsea striker Diego Costa.

El Confidencial says Costa will not be replacing the French forward, but will form a deadly partnership with Greizmann in the second half of the season.

Atletico have finally brought their man back after agreeing a £67million fee with Chelsea for the forward, after three years at Stamford Bridge.

Costa will only be able to make his second debut for Los Rojiblancos in January, once the club's transfer embargo is lifted.

It's the same embargo that scuppered Manchester United's move for Griezmann when he looked Old Trafford bound in the summer.
