Diego Costa Has Told Chelsea Teammates He's Leaving The Club

Chelsea Transfer News Diego Costa hours away from Atletico Madrid move

Chelsea are facing a striker crisis as Diego Costa is set for the Stamford Bridge exit.

This may come as a bit of a surprise, given today's news that Manchester United took a step closer to signing Romelu Lukaku from Everton - a player who has been linked with Chelsea for quite a while now.

The Premier League champions have no plans to allow Costa extended leave from training until an agreement is reached for his sale, despite the fact that his relationship with Conte appears damaged beyond fix and he has reportedly begun to say goodbye to his Chelsea teammates.

His experience helped the club escape relegation in the 2016-2017 season and the blues faithfuls sees him as the idle Striker to replace Diego Costa.




The Premier League champions start pre-season on Monday and the deal could happen as fast as this week as Chelsea gaffer Antonio Conte would like Costa to be gone by then.

The same article states that Costa has told some of his Chelsea team-mates that he is confident a return to Atletico will materialise in the summer transfer window.

The Spain worldwide has made no secret of his desire to return to Atletico Madrid, but such a move would not be possible until January due to the Spanish giants now being banned from signing players. He arrived at Chelsea from Atleti for about $42 million after a 27-goal season in 2013-14, and scored 59 goals in 120 matches (though his production outside the Premier League left much to be desired).
