REVEALED: Monaco made serious move for departing Chelsea striker Diego Costa

Monaco made a serious move for departing Chelsea striker Diego Costa last month, it has been revealed.

Costa is due to sign for Atletico Madrid after a fee was settled between the two clubs.

Le 10 Sport says Monaco met with Jorge Mendes, Costa's agent, to explore the prospect of signing the Spain international.

In the end, a deal was ruled out as Monaco sought other options.

Stevan Jovetic and Keita Baldé arrived at Monaco in the final days of the summer market from Inter and Lazio respectively.
