Atletico Madrid could wind up Chelsea ahead of this week’s Champions League clash.
The Sun says Diego Costa could be paraded in front of Atletico fans ahead of their Champions League clash with Chelsea on Wednesday night.
The Spain striker landed in Madrid on Friday and completed a medical before making an appearance in the stands for the 2-0 La Liga win over Sevilla.
And he could complete his £67million return to the Spanish capital within the next few days.
While Atletico’s Fifa-imposed transfer ban means he cannot be officially registered until January, this deal would constitute a binding agreement with Chelsea.
Wednesday night’s clash will be an awkward first encounter for Costa, 28, with Antonio Conte and the Chelsea hierarchy since they celebrated the title together in May.
