Diego Costa has fuelled speculation about his desire to return to Atletico Madrid from Chelsea this summer by wearing the club's shirt to a street party in Brazil.

Is Batshuayi the way forward?

Carrasco is reportedly interested by the idea of playing in England, reports the Express, with Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simone now being given the task of trying to persuade the midfielder to stay at the club.

Chelsea completed their third signing of the summer on Saturday when they finally announced a deal to land Tiemoue Bakayoko from Monaco, following the arrivals of Antonio Rudiger and Willy Caballero.

"You saw it last season, in the seasons before at Juventus and with Italy as national coach".

Costa, now twenty-eight-years-old, scored twenty goals in thirty-five league appearances last season.

Costa, who was told to find a new club by manager Antonio Conte shortly after the end of their title-winning 2016/17 season, had already made clear his wish to return to his former club in the Spanish capital.

The striker is known for his outstanding pace, which would fit in with Chelsea's rapid counter-attacking style that they have adopted under Conte and his preferred 3-4-3 formation.

It is claimed that Atletico Madrid's move to sign Vitolo has cast doubt over Carrasco's long-term future at the Spanish club, even though he'll be loaned to Las Palmas until January due to their transfer ban.
