Chelsea star Diego Costa released a statement on his future and, as expected, it won’t be at Stamford Bridge:
“My destination is already made. I must return to Atletico Madrid,” Brazil’s Globoesporte quoted him.
“It turns out that there is the impasse that Chelsea does not want to release me. But I believe that this situation will be resolved now on my return to Spain.”
“I am waiting for Chelsea to set me free. Why won’t they let me go if they don’t want me?
“My desire is to go to Atletico. I’ve spoken to Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia. I said, ‘If the manager doesn’t want me, I want to go to Atletico Madrid’.
“They want me to be there training with the reserves. I wouldn’t be allowed access to the first-team dressing room and I would have no contact at all with the guys. I’m not a criminal! I don’t think it is fair after all I have done to be treated like that
