Costa has been a long-term target for Jose Mourinho but news of a move to the club went a little quiet when Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone asked for him to stay for one more season.
The request came after Costa’s penalty helped Atletico Madrid go through to the Champions League Final, ironically at the expense of Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
The Spanish side are also two wins away from winning La Liga and it had been thought that Simeone’s request was being listened to, but not according to today’s Daily Star.
They believe that the deal is back underway with Atletico Madrid already making plans to sign his replacement.
Apparently the La Liga side have created a list of players that can fill the gap and Sevilla striker Carlos Bacca is believed to be that man.
The landlord quips to the Chelsea fans about sending them Fernando Torres plus cash whether they like it or not but it now seems that any interest in Torres may be dwindling.
