Chelsea striker Diego Costa has taken off to Brazil.

The Guardian says the Blues have been given a three-day break by manage Antonio Conte.

He’s allowed his players time to put their feet up before the Boxing Day clash with Bournemouth next week.

And Costa has used the opportunity to return to his homeland.

The striker can’t play against the Cherries due to a suspension so a long-haul flight won’t lead to any fitness issues for the game.
