Finally moving forward
Chelsea forward Diego Costa is getting closer to leaving the club this summer with Atletico Madrid slowly closing in on a big money move.
The striker has been told he has no future at Stamford Bridge by manager Antonio Conte and Alvaro Morata’s arrival confirms that.
Now, with his heart seemingly on a return to Atletico, a deal is moving slowly closer according to reports.
Morata’s arrival has given the side a green light according to reports in Spain and thus will now look to agree a deal.
That may prove difficult with Chelsea still looking to get top money for a player who has impressed in the Premier League.
Atletico also have no rush to sign the player, with their transfer ban ensuring that the player still wouldn’t be able to play until January.
Their ban means that they can still sign new players but they can not be registered until the January Window.
Mourinho moaning about clubs paying crazy money for 'normal' players is the equivalent of Diego Costa calling Frank Ribéry ugly.

Morata gives first interview
Safe to say Alvaro Morata’s first interview in England was an improvised one.
Landing at Heathrow Airport in London, Sky Sports were quick to clock the Spaniard.
