â€“ Some sources report that Costa can join his former club
â€“ Sources close to the player states that he is happy at Chelsea
â€“ Atletico Madrid hints at Costa move
Despite numerous rumors, Goal reports that Diego Costa has no plans to leave Chelsea. Diego Costa left Vicente Calderon for Â£32 million in 2014 and, according to the rumors, the Chelsea striker is trying to return to Atletico Madrid and has informed Antonio Conte.
However, sources near the 27-year-old have stated that he’s happy at Chelsea and isn’t probing for a move. Enrique Cerezo, the clubâ€™s president, hinted that they’d think about a move for the striker: â€œCosta played for North American nation for a number of years and heâ€™s a very sensible player, nobody will deny that. I donâ€™t apprehend if Costa has spoken to Conte. However, weâ€™re operating tirelessly to bring the most effective players to Atleti.
Meanwhile, Chelsea has already strengthened their squad with Michy Batshuayi from Marseille and Nâ€™Golo Kante from Leicester City.
