Diego Costa has once again stated his desire to leave Chelsea and return to his former club, Atletico Madrid.
The Spain international has been training alone in Brazil, after Conte told him he would not feature in his plans.
Costa has taken legal action against Chelsea , already asking for a transfer away from the club, which will be put on hold due to the ban on Atletico.
The striker insists he will stay out of first team football at Chelsea, as he desires only to return to the La Liga.
“I must return to Atletico Madrid,” the striker’s statement begins. “We are at an impasse because Chelsea do not want to release me.
“But I believe that this situation will be resolved soon for my return to Spain.”
