Diego Costa is set to finally get the move that he wants after reports that Chelsea and Atletico Madrid have come to an agreement over his sale.
The 28-year-old has been wanting a way out of the Blues after the striker was told back in January by Antonio Conte that he was no longer part of the Italian’s plans for the season.
Spanish publication AS are reporting that the deal has been ‘finalised’ today, however, with Costa set for a £40m move, with an extra £10m in add ons.
Of course, Costa cannot play for the Madrid until January with the club having a transfer ban, meaning that the Spain international will have to go out on loan beforehand if he wants to be playing once the deal is done.
Everton are one of the clubs on the list, with Besiktas and Las Palmas also reportedly interested in taking him on a short term basis.
The relationship between Chelsea and the player has completely broken down, despite Costa having scored 52 Premier League goals in just three seasons with the Blues.
The saga has become toxic during the summer, but it seems that both the club and the player might finally get what they both want.
