Atletico’s Costa suffers latest injury setback ahead of new season

 Atletico Madrid have been dealt a setback five days before their La Liga campaign begins with the news that striker Diego Costa has sustained a thigh injury.

Atletico said on Tuesday that Costa had hurt his left thigh in the final minute of the team’s 2-1 friendly win over Juventus last Saturday in Stockholm, but did not say how long he would be out of action.

Costa missed a large part of the last campaign due to a knee injury but has impressed during pre-season, scoring four goals in a thumping 7-3 friendly win over local rivals Real Madrid last month.

Atletico are negotiating with Valencia to sign striker Rodrigo for 60 million euros (£55.6 million).
