The dispute until it was reportedly will continue to the green table. However, in the end Chelsea chose to comply with Costa’s request back to Chelsea. “Atletico and Chelsea have reached a transfer deal to Diego Costa,” Atletico said in a statement.
Seeing the current squad, Costa power is not needed Chelsea. The reason, the role of the main striker has been given to Alvaro Morata who was recruited from Real Madrid. While Michy Batshuayi will be the coating.
“The attacker was great and always supportive when I arrived at Chelsea Thank you for all the crazy things @diegocosta and good luck in the future,” Batshuayi wrote on his Twitter account.
Costa came to Chelsea in the summer of 2014 at the request of Jose Mourinho. Its contribution is quite vital with the collection of 58 goals and 24 assists. He helped the Blues win two English League titles and one English League Cup.
