Costa arrives in Madrid

Diego Costa

Diego Costa has arrived in Madrid and plans to live in the Spanish capital until he finalises his return to Atletico Madrid in the January transfer window, reports AS.

The Chelsea forward landed in the Spanish capital yesterday afternoon (Tuesday) and has informed his camp that he will live there until January, when he expects to seal his return to Atletico.

Costa wants to pressure Chelsea into accepting Atleti’s proposal – he has no intention of returning to Stamford Bridge and is only contemplating re-joining his old club.

The 28-year-old reached an agreement in principle with Atleti at the start of July and AS reports that he rejected an offer to join Fenerbahce on loan until January, despite the fact Chelsea had agreed a deal with the Turkish club.
