Chelsea set to silence critics with huge transfer move

Chelsea set to silence critics with huge transfer move

However, the 28-year-old has since then moved to Brazil, his birth country, and accused Chelsea of treating him "like a criminal", refusing to rule out legal action.

Reigning Premier League champions Chelsea have given embattled Spanish striker Diego Costa four demands for them to consider selling him to Atletico Madrid. They send messages saying "I miss you" and that they love me.I am always talking with the boys - particularly Cesc Fabregas, David Luiz and Willian.

"I am waiting for Chelsea to set me free".

The Telegraph also reported that Chelsea and Atletico have held talks regarding a potential Costa transfer, but in the meantime the Blues want their star striker contributing to their cause on the pitch. "He was granted permission to go by Conte under one condition, which was "you might not get a look in upon your return".

"How painful he didn't give Mikel the chance to say goodbye to fans who have stood by him for ten and half seasons".

Although the pair have returned to full training, it is unlikely they will be considered for the league match against Tottenham at Wembley on Sunday.

As such, Atletico Madrid are in no rush to reach an agreement with Chelsea and could do the deal after the window closes, according to El Larguero. I wouldn't be allowed access to the first-team dressing room and I would have no contact at all with the guys. While he waits for a resolution, Costa continues to train and stay ready for the moment that his name gets called. "I don't think it is fair after all I have done to be treated like that".

The player has always appeared somewhat unsettled at Stamford Bridge, and a return to Spain will suit his game, giving him the environment he needs to play his best football.

With the striker due to report for training two weeks ago, he insisted he has no intention of returning to West London after the way he was treated by Conte.
