Diego Costa is determined to return to Atletico Madrid and believes his future will soon be resolved according to sources.
The Chelsea forward who is currently in Brazil and has no plans to return to Stamford Bridge or play for the club again after his relationship with manager Antonio Conte went sour since the Italian told him via text message that he was no longer needed at the club.
Costa currently has his eyes on a second return to Atletico, though he is under a transfer embargo, and will seemingly do anything necessary to secure that move.
The Mirror quoted the Spanish player to say “My destination is already made. I must return to Atletico Madrid,” he said in a statement.
“It turns out that there is the impasse that Chelsea does not want to release me. But I believe that this situation will be resolved now on my return to Spain.”
Earlier this week, Costa gave an interview to the Daily Mail in which he stated his desire to leave Chelsea, accusing them of treating him like a ‘criminal’.
