Chelsea striker Diego Costa has told Atletico Madrid he wants to leave Stamford Bridge and rejoin the La Liga giants, according to reports in SkySports.

Antonio Conte is already looking for a replacement as he made Romelu Lukaku, Alvaro Morata and Robert Lewandowski the main targets to replace the Spaniard.

Atletico’s transfer ban means that Diego Costa would not be able to feature under manager Diego Pablo Simeone until January 2018.

Chelsea reportedly put a £50m price tag on the striker, who joined the Blues from Atletico in 2014 for a fee esteemed around £35m.
