Atlético waiting on a call from Chelsea over Diego Costa

Chelsea striker Diego Costa has revealed that Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho contacted him by phone this summer.

According to Sky Sports, the Blues have communicated to Costa that they expect him to return to the club immediately and begin training.

The Spanish global 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.

CNN senior political analyst David Axelrod compared Trump to a "runaway truck, there are no brakes, there is no reverse". Still, in times of a domestic crisis, we expect the president to help us to remember we are all Americans.

Meanwhile, it is not yet clear if Diego Costa would meet these requirements as the striker is now in Brazil training alone. The lines of communication between Atletico and Chelsea remain open and the Spaniards do not want to do anything to jeopardise their relationship with the Premier League club.

Unable to say goodbye to fans who saw him develop over 10.5 years and 381 appearances at Chelsea, the former FK Lyn starlet eventually left through the backdoor on a free transfer.

Coutinho handed in a transfer request last week after Liverpool had rejected Barcelona's second offer of £90.4m for the playmaker. "Not because I do not think he is a good player, I think he is a brilliant player, but I think they need one at the back and also a No 9".

Atlético are aware that they can not force the issue and have to wait for a solution to be reached between Chelsea and Costa, an outcome that seems increasingly distant with the player in Brazil and Chelsea's minds elsewhere. They really love me for the person I am. I'll come back stronger. Bids of £52 million and £61 million have been submitted, and the Blues now want the talent to ask his club for a move away from Turin. "If they didn't, they wouldn't be saying they miss me and love me". "I mean, we don't know what went on behind the scenes, but it looked like he may have thrown his toys out the pram and that Conte hasn't forgotten or forgiven him for that".

"If I'm Liverpool or Everton I'm doing everything I can to sign Diego Costa".

"I was told how Conte treated Mikel after his decision to represent Nigeria at the Rio 2016 Olympics".
