Chelsea forward Diego Costa has reportedly left his native home at Brazil for Spain to finalise a move to Atletico Madrid.

Sources claim that the striker is planning to train at a private facility at Madrid in order to strong arm Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich into reaching an agreement with the La Liga aces for his services.

Costa has been playing hardball ever since Blues boss Antonio Conte informed the Spaniard that he was no longer a part of his plans at the Stamford Bridge - a development which prompted the talisman to go absent without leave ever since the end of their successful Premier League campaign last season.

The 28-year-old hopes that the defending champions can agree a £54m with Atleti, which will enable him train with the Spanish side until they are eligible to register players where their transfer ban ends in January.
