Chelsea just announced an agreement with Atletico Madrid for the transfer of Diego Costa was agreed today.
The Blues published a short note on their official website:
Chelsea Football Club has today agreed terms with Atletico Madrid for the transfer of Diego Costa.
The transfer will be subject to the agreement of personal terms and a medical.
The Brazilian-born striker will finally return to the Spanish club, a move that he desperately wanted all summer long, where he was even AWOL after falling out with Chelsea boss Antonio Conte in June.
Costa won’t be able to play in official games until January 2018, after Atletico’s transfer ban will end in December 2017.
The fee is undisclosed, but it’s believed to be in the region of £40/50m.
