Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul: Diego Costa could be our best signing

Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez insists the players want Diego Costa to stay.

The striker appeared on his way out in May, but has starred in preseason.

"He doesn't have to make up for anything," Saul explained.

"Last year he had a lot of injuries and he could be our best signing [ahead of next season].

"He carries a lot of weight for us because of his character and how he infects us [with his attitude and mentality]."
