The Spain international received special treatment as security ushered him through the airportAfter weeks of negotiations, Chelsea and Atletico Madrid have finally agreed a £55m deal for Diego Costa.

The Spaniard won the title with Chelsea in Antonio Conte’s first season at the club. But their stay together was far from smooth as the pair clashed midway through last season.



And with the close of the season, Costa was informed via a text message from Conte that he should find a new club.

The striker was subsequently ostracized from the first team and told to train with the junior teams… a decision that angered Costa and made him not return to Chelsea.

Speaking at a press conference ahead of their away game to Stoke City, Conte thanked Diego Costa for his time at Chelsea but steered clear of paying him a warm tribute.


Conte said: ‘I think that, about this issue, we want to thank him for what he did with this club. We wish him all the best for the future.




When pushed for further comments, he said: ‘I think now it’s not important. I’m not interested to continue talking about this issue. I’m working with my players, I’m very happy to work with these players. Now it’s not important.

‘I repeat now: I’m not interested to talk about the past. I think the past is not important. For every player, for every single player, the past stay there. If you did well in the past, okay.

‘We have to see, to work for the present and above all for the future.

‘Don’t forget we won together last season. I repeat: for sure we want to thank him for his effort last season with us. Not only last season but in the period that he played for Chelsea.’
