Chelsea ready to cash in on troublesome star this summer
Chelsea are gearing up to sell top scorer Diego Costa at the right price this summer, with his former club Atletico Madrid keen to lure him back to the Vicente Calderon, per the Daily Star.
Costa, 28, has been in fantastic form this season, scoring 20 goals and helping the Blues to within one game of winning the Premier League title. But his time at Stamfird Bridge has not all been plain sailing.
As recently as January, Costa was dropped by boss Antonio Conte following a fall out in relation to a £30million-per-year contract offer from a Chinese club.
The Brazilian-born Spain striker has also admitted he wanted to return to Atletico last year, accusing them of lacking the patience to do a deal.

Bit it appears they will get another chance, despite the interest from China still very apparent. Conte is already looking towards next season and with that planning on making big changes to his squad.
