Costa relocates family to Madrid ahead of proposed Atletico move

Costa relocates family to Madrid ahead of proposed Atletico move

Costa returned to his native Brazil following the revelations and has since refused to come back to Stamford Bridge and train with the reserves, claiming that he has been treated like "a criminal" by the club.

Costa has been omitted from Chelsea's squad for the group stages of the Champions League, which indicates that he is unlikely to play for the club before the January transfer window.

Atletico president Enrique Cerezo recently spoke of his desire to secure Costa for the winter window when their transfer ban lifts, per Joe Short in the Express: "We can not sign anyone until January, hopefully by then Costa and many others will come".

Atletico Madrid officials have jetted in to London to secure the transfer of Chelsea outcast Diego Costa, reports say.

Cerezo insists the Argentine has committed to the collective project in the Spanish capital and was not holding out for transfer assurances.


"What happened is that all contracts have an end date, and when that happens there are talks about extending them".

Costa has already agreed personal terms with Atletico, and will sign a £9.1million-a-year deal, according to the Express.

Yet he may still have to return to Chelsea if he wants to seal a move away from the club.

The Sun note that Antonio Conte informed Costa earlier this year that he was no longer in his plans via text message.
