Chelsea’s Diego Costa has finally returned to London after nearly three months in Brazil as it appears that the 28-year-old has finally agreed to accept the Blues’ wishes and to recover his fitness with their reserves, this is according to Marca accompanied by a picture of Costa in London yesterday.
At the same time, negotiations will still continue to finalise a January return to Atletico Madrid for the forward.
Diego Costa had accused Chelsea of ‘treating him like a criminal’ and insisted on a move to Atletico Madrid, however, director Marina Granovskaia was not willing to push on with negotiations until the Spain international came back.
Given that ultimatum, Atletico were also keen for Costa to resolve his differences with his current club as he received calls from Andrea Berta, Diego Simeone, Tiago and Filipe Luis.
Costa will most likely be playing with the U23s’ to regain match fitness but is not expected to feature in Conte’s plans this season till January 2018.
Chelsea has not confirmed his arrival though.
