Antonio Conte is desperate to sell the strikerWhat's the story?
There's no rush from Atletico to do a deal with Chelsea, because they can't register Costa in their squad until January anyway, so getting a deal done now rather than on August 31st isn't that appealing.
The Brazil- born Spain worldwide was told that he would not be in Conte's plans for next season via a text message at the end of last season.
The striker is keen on replicating his success in Spain with a return to the Wanda Metropolitano, the home turf of the Colchoneros.
However, Marca reports that the 28-year-old is growing frustrated with the length of time it is taking Atleti to make their move, so much so that he may decide to consider other options available.

Costa is expected to leave Chelsea this summer after being told by Blues manager Antonio Conte that he is not part of the Italian's plans for the upcoming 2017-18 season, with Alvaro Morata recently being purchased from Real Madrid for £60m.
A proposed move to AC Milan is on the cards - even if it is merely temporary.
