Chelsea are in talks with Atletico Madrid over Diego Costa as they appear to be nearing an agreement.

Chelsea outcast Costa is desperate to join Atletico but Chelsea have been driving a hard bargain and now they seem to be nearing a £30m compromise.


Atletico have yet to find a club to loan him until their transfer ban is lifted in January but they can sign him but just cannot play him.

Costa is currently in a stand-off with the Premier League champions and there is little chance of boss Antonio Conte accepting him back into the fold.
