Chelsea & Atletico Madrid agrees on Diego Costa Deal

Costa refused to return to Chelsea’s Cobham training base this summer, instead remaining in Brazil in hope that Atletico could strike a deal to bring him back to Madrid.

Atletico failed to push through the move before the transfer deadline, safe in the knowledge that Costa would not be able to play for them until January due to the club’s transfer ban.

Costa who spent four years at Atletico before joining Chelsea in July 2014 has not played for 98 days since he appeared for Spain in a World Cup Qualifier against Macedonia in June.

The 28-year-old has scored 59 goals in 120 matches during his time with Chelsea, winning two Premier League titles and one League Cup.
