Outcast Chelsea star Diego Costa set to rejoin Atletico Madrid

Outcast Chelsea star Diego Costa set to rejoin Atletico Madrid

The Belgian global was initially expected to re-join former club Chelsea but United moved in to pole position after reports emerged late last week [via the BBC] that the Red Devils had agreed a fee for Lukaku's signature.

The Blues forward has apparently already bid farewell to his teammates as he nears ever closer to a reunion with his former Club.

However, the Premier League champions are struggling to sign a striker to replace Costa despite Antonio Conte informing the 28-year-old that he is surplus to requirements next term.

With Costa duly making that message public, this has effectively weakened Chelsea's negotiating position in the process.

However, a possible move back to the Spanish capital is complicated with Los Rojiblancos banned from registering players due to the transfer ban imposed on them.

Costa initially left Atletico for Chelsea for a fee of around £32m in the summer of 2014, though he has never really settled in London.

The Spanish club are ready to put him on a special training programme to maintain his fitness until he can be registered to play in January.

However, the fresh reports suggest that the Vicente Calderon outfit are going ahead with the deal and Costa will either stay at the club and train for the next 6 months or will be loaned to a Chinese Super League outfit.

While Costa is prepared to wait for this, Conte is keen to offload the £150k-a-week man before the new season begins.

One of those names is Real Madrid's Alvaro Morata.
