Agreement reached for Diego Costa to return to Atletico

Eden Hazard

The deal is subject to personal terms and a medical.

The deal is worth 60 million euros ($71.3m); Atletico will pay 55m euros with a further 10m euros in add-ons.

It was reported early last summer that Chelsea's coach Antonio Conte told Costa he was no longer part of the English club's plans for the future and should seek another team.

Atletico are in the midst of a transfer ban, so Costa would be unable to feature for the club until January.

They are now in the middle of a transfer ban which does not end until the turn of the year.

He had made it clear throughout a protracted saga that a return to Atletico was his preferred choice, and he has now got his wish.

Qatar emir again urges dialogue, Trump says dispute to be resolved quickly
According to a Bloomberg report, Saudi Arabia and the UAE planned a regime change in Qatar by taking a military action at the early stages of the dispute.

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

According to the Mirror, Chelsea have reached an agreement with Atletico Madrid for the sale of their star striker.

Costa then refused to return to London, opting to remain in his native Brazil until an agreement was reached with the club he spent four years at before joining Chelsea in 2014.

That means that Costa will not be able to play against Chelsea when the sides meet in the Champions League group stages.

"It's always good to hear good news like this". I totally agree when journalists talk because you journalists speak well and know what you are saying. "I'm leaving home at once". The initial request for Diego Costa came from Diego Simeone. Atletico recently signed Spain forward Victor "Vitolo" Machin but he is on a loan with Las Palmas until January.
