RUMOURS: Diego Costa moves family to Madrid in search of Atleti return

Chelsea wantaway striker Diego Costa has moved his family to Madrid as he continues his attempts to force through a move to Atletico Madrid, according to The Sun.

Costa is currently in Brazil and refusing to return to Stamford Bridge.

Those closest to the 28-year-old are now in the Spanish capital instead of his base in Oxshott, Surrey.

Diego Costa’s house is near the Blues’ training ground, where he was expected to report back after his summer holidays in Brazil.

But the Spain international has not returned and is racking up fines while absent from training.

Reports reveal how he has no plans to return to clear his locker – telling team-mates to take his belongings. But he may have to return to seal a move away from the club.

And he is determined to return to Atletico Madrid where he spent four years before arriving at Stamford Bridge.

The Spain international, who fell out with Blues boss Antonio Conte this year, remains AWOL from Stamford Bridge following the club’s failure to sell him in the summer…
