Chelsea have finally managed to negotiate Diego Costa`s dream move back to his beloved Atletico Madrid. In a saga that has dragged on all summer the Brazilian born Spanish international has been AWOL since receiving a text, from Antonio Conte, telling him he was surplus to requirements this season.
Understandably Costa`s popularity amongst Chelsea fans has dropped somewhat since he took it upon himself to disown the club. When he signed back in 2014, he was pleased to have arrived in London,
‘I am very happy to sign for Chelsea. Everybody knows it is a big club in a very competitive league, and I am very excited to get started in England with a fantastic coach (Jose Mourinho) and team-mates. Having played against Chelsea last season I know the high quality of the squad I am joining.’
