Atletico Madrid are growing confident of agreeing a deal with Chelsea to re-sign Diego Costa, according to Sky Sports.
Costa has not featured for the Blues since May, and despite being included in our 25-man Premier League squad, he is yet to return to training at the Cobham training ground.
There doesn’t look to be a future for him at Stamford Bridge, and Sky Sports believe that Atletico are getting closer and closer to providing him with an escape route from his exile.
Sky Sports report that a source ‘close’ to negotiations between Chelsea and Atletico has revealed that there is progress being made, but the deal is yet to be signed and sealed.
As per Sky Sports, Chelsea are demanding £50M in exchange for the Spaniard, whereas Atletico have yet to increase their £30M proposal.
The Costa saga continues to drag on, let’s hope that both parties can find a speedy resolution.
