Chelsea's Diego Costa to join Atletico Madrid after clubs agree to terms on transfer
The Brazil-born striker's time in London is done as a transfer deal is now in place
Chelsea striker Diego Costa is leaving the club. On Thursday, the Blues announced that the team had agreed to terms with Atletico Madrid for the transfer of the forward.
The 28-year-old Spanish citizen joined the London club in 2014 and has scored 59 goals in 120 matches. He joined from Atletico, where he had 64 goals in 135 matches.
After a, Costa hasn't played for the Blues this season with Alvaro Morata brought in as starter and Michey Batshuayi firmly set as Morata's back up.
Costa's move is expected to be completed during the January transfer window. Sadly for him, he couldn't get a move done during the summer with Atletico's current transfer ban. Had he been able to move in the summer, he could have faced Chelsea twice in this season's Champions League group stage as the two are in together in Group C.
