Chelsea considering Atleti offer


Reports claim that Atletico Madrid are waiting on a response from Chelsea after offering £54million for Diego Costa.

The Spain international has failed to return to west London to link up with Chelsea this season after receiving a text message from Antonio Conte confirming he wasn’t set to be in the first team picture.

Costa has remained in Brazil over the summer and revealed that he is desperate to secure a return to Atletico, having left them for Chelsea in 2014.

It’s understood that Atletico, who are unable to register players until January due to a transfer embargo, have made a number of offers to Chelsea for the striker, however, they have all been rejected.

Reports emerging from Spain now suggest that Chelsea are giving some serious though to a final bid of £54million from Atleti as they look to get the deal over the line.
