Diego Costa urges Antoine Griezmann to remain at Atletico Madrid

Atletico Madrid forward Diego Costa has said he would 'love' for team mate Antoine Griezmann to stay at the La Liga club beyond the next transfer window.

Griezmann has been linked with a move away from the Spanish capital for the past 18 months and was on the verge of joining Premier League side Manchester United last year. He made a U-turn, however, when Atletico's transfer ban was upheld and instead signed a new deal through to 2022.

Costa, who officially re-joined Atletico from Chelsea in January after an acrimonious falling out with manager Antonio Conte, did not play for the first half of the season.

His performances since coming back into the side, scoring six times in 14 appearances in all competitions, have earned him a recall to the Spain squad for the first time since June last year for the upcoming friendlies against Germany and Argentina.

The 29-year-old said that he was in a good place now following a difficult period.
