Diego Costa could be free-spending Atletico´s ´best signing´, says Saul

Diego Costa’s return to form and fitness could prove more valuable for Atletico Madrid than their eight new signings, according to team-mate Saul Niguez.

Five pre-season goals – including four and a red card in the stunning 7-3 thrashing of rivals Real Madrid – suggest the controversial striker is getting back to his best.

He managed just 16 appearances in LaLiga last term due to a combination of injuries, Alvaro Morata’s arrival and a season-ending eight-game ban for insulting a referee.

Costa still has one match of that suspension to serve but looks to be enjoying a new lease of life after two lean campaigns.

“Diego looks great to me,” Spain midfielder Saul told Spanish radio station COPE.

“I love it when he’s like this, [because his attitude is] infectious. He’s a player we need at all times.

“I love that he defends his team-mates as he did against Madrid, that he fights for the shirt and I think that if Diego Costa is at his best level he will be the best signing we have.”
