Diego Costa set to join Atletico Madrid for £ 41m

Three days to the end of this summer transfer window and still Diego Costa has to find a team after being left out of Chelsea first team squad.

The Spanish striker never came back from his Brazilian break after he fell out with manager Antonio Conte before going on holidays and was willing to be released by the West London club.

But a contract with the Blues is running until 2019 and the club directors want to do things in the right way, without breaking the deal and with a normal selling procedure.

A solution is near, as it seems Chelsea and Atletico Madrid found an agreement on the fee for £ 41m, with Costa set to move back to the Spanish capital in the next days, before the transfer window closes on Thursday night.

However, the Brazilian born forward won’t be able to officially wear the Colchoneros shirt until January 2018 for the Spanish side FIFA transfer market ban that will run out at the end of this year.
