According to multiple sources across Spain this afternoon, Chelsea and Atletico Madrid have finally reached a deal to send striker Diego Costa to the Spanish capital.

Costa joined Chelsea from Atletico for £32m in the summer of 2014 and won two Premier League titles at Stamford Bridge, finishing as the club's top scorer in each of his three full seasons.

But following his £57m move to Atletico, will the Premier League actually miss Costa?

But should he pass the medical and agree terms swiftly, he could find himself paraded on Wednesday as Atletico Madrid welcome the West Lononders to their new stadium.

Costa and Chelsea boss Antonio Conte have been in different terms since the culmination of last season.

The deal is worth 60 million euros ($71.3m); Atletico will pay 55m euros with a further 10m euros in add-ons.

The Spanish La Liga club did not reveal where Costa would play in the coming months since Atletico can not recruit any new players until January 2018 in compliance with a Federation Internationale de Football Association transfer window ban.

That ban expires in January, which is when Costa will become available. He's getting what he wants and going back to Atletico Madrid.

The striker enjoyed huge success during his first spell at Atletico Madrid and is keen to now put his career back on track in the happier hunting grounds of La Liga.

Problems between Costa and Chelsea surfaced earlier in the year when he was left out of the Chelsea side for an away match at Leicester having been involved in a dispute with a fitness coach. But I'm glad I came here tonight [to learn that we are about to sign Costa] because now I can go home calmer.
