Diego Costa Return to Atletico Madrid Reportedly Increasing in Likelihood

07 July 2017

It's been well chronicled how Chelsea Manager Antonio Conte can not coexist with Costa and that the striker must inevitably part ways with Stamford Bridge.

Diego Costa is on the verge of a return to his spiritual home.

Although should the Spanish club make an offer of £22m plus add-ons then there's the prospect of Costa being forced to return to Surrey to begin fitness work under Conte as he waits for a resolution over his future.

Following Spain's 2-2 draw against Colombia in June, Costa told reporters: "Conte has sent me a message telling me I'm not in his plans".

Chelsea star Diego Costa has reportedly bid farewell to his teammates as he nears ever closer to a move away from the club.

Atletico are now under a transfer ban until January 2018.

This came following the January transfer window in which Costa looked to force through a move to the Chinese Super League.

Tianjin Quanjin had been keen on signing Costa for £76m earlier in the year, but Atletico believe they can sign the 28-year old for half of that figure. With pre-season training due to commence in the coming days, Chelsea will look to get their squad settled - as the beginning of the new Premier League season is fast approaching.

Atletico sold Costa to Chelsea three years ago for £32m.
