Costa could return to Chelsea

Diego Costa accuses Chelsea of treating him like a 'criminal' and claims Blues are holding him against his will

Former Atletico Madrid defender Tomas Ujfalusi says he hopes Chelsea striker Diego Costa returns to the Liga club.

Costa has claimed that Conte told him via text in June that he was no longer wanted, while the Stamford Bridge club say the 28-year-old was made aware of their plans in January.

The Spanish worldwide claimed that he was told he was not wanted by Conte via text message in the summer and said he wishes to return to Atletico.

Costa is believed to have been absent without leave from Chelsea since the club flew to China for a pre-season tour in the middle of July.

Costa is now in his native Brazil and has threatened to remain there rather than return to London, and then leave on a free transfer.

The Spain global has scored over 50 goals for the Blues but has also been a volatile presence at times and it has been suggested that he has a poor relationship with manager Antonio Conte.

SunSport also understands Costa has not contacted the PFA over his claims he is being "treated like a criminal".

He told The Daily Mail: "They gave me a week extra off but, since then, it's fines all the way". If they want to get into that top four consistently and do well in the Champions League - Everton in the Europa League - you could do a lot worse than Diego Costa. "I'm coming in now to Chelsea saying look, you're clearly prepared to do it having sold [Nemanja] Matic to a title rival in Man United". The second is that he should report for training, the third that he get match fit and the fourth, and most surprising, that he put himself into contention for first-team selection.

"If the manager doesn't want me, I want to go to Atletico Madrid".

Alan Shearer was impressed by Alvaro Morata's performance during Chelsea's shock 3-2 loss to Burnley in their Premier League opener at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

"What should be happening is that he should be back at Chelsea training", Wright said on Sky Sports.
