Diego Costa confirms his days at Chelsea are over

Diego Costa is done at Chelsea.

The star Spanish striker has alienated himself from the squad and wants out of Stamford Bridge immediately. The 28-year-old has already confirmed that he will travel to Spain in hope of signing a contract with former club Atletico Madrid.

“My future is already defined,” Costa told Globoesporte.

“I have to return to Atletico Madrid next season. There’s a problem because Chelsea don’t want to set me free.”

“But I think the situation will soon be resolved now that I will return to Spain.”

There is a catch. Atletico is unable to sign anyone until January due to a transfer ban put in place by FIFA. Manager Antonio Conte also won’t let the front-man leave for less than £40m.

Costa’s has failed to report to training resulting in a breach of contract. It would be a sad end if Chelsea decides to take action and sue the double Premier League winning star.
