Diego Costa could return to Spain while Tottenham duo Harry Kane and Dele Alli are wanted by the same club

It is transfer deadline day in some leagues today and clubs are still scrambling to make some much-needed signings before the January transfer window closes for good. As is often the case, most deals take place on the final day as buying clubs haggle to bring down the player's price while selling clubs call the shots by holding out for as much as possible.

We look at all the possible deals that could take place and those that may have to wait till the summer.

Diego Costa transfer
Will Diego Costa return to Spain?

Barcelona reportedly want to sign Juan Mata from Manchester United in the summer, according to Don Balon. Mata made a name for himself at Valencia before a move to the Premier League and the report states that United could listen to offers for the midfielder they bought from Chelsea for £37.1m.

– According to AS, Atletico Madrid want to bring Chelsea striker Diego Costa back to the Vicente Calderon and will bid as high as €45m. Diego Simeone had been the main figure in Costa’s rise before his move to the Premier League.

With a transfer ban impending, Atletico are planning ahead and looking to secure their signings as soon as possible. Atletico may also offer Jackson Martinez in the deal after his transfer to the Liga club last summer has flopped. 

– Real Madrid are back in the hunt for Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea after failing to land him last summer. According to Mirror, his agent Jorge Mendes has been informed that the Blancos will push for a transfer this summer. 

With Real Madrid’s transfer ban provisionally suspended, Madrid could try and get the Spanish no.1 for £23m and also give De Gea a £6.5m signing-on bonus as a means to apologise for their failure to sign him in August last year.
