Diego Costa has told Chelsea teammates he wants to return to former club Atletico Madrid.
The Mirror says he has been in regular contact with former team-mates at Atletico.
It’s claimed Costa told pals he is keen on a move back to the Vicente Calderon.
However, Chelsea are unwilling to sell the Spain international on the cheap and will refuse bids from Atletico worth less than the £30m they shelled out in 2014.
Atletico have the necessary funds after selling Jackson Martinez to Chinese club Guangzhou Evergrande for £32m last month.
