I would hope we aren't a club that will be held to ransom by Diego Costa. Either we get a fee we think is satisfactory or I hope we keep him. Conte was able to talk him off the edge so to speak in January. Maybe he can do it again.

Unless we're just desperate as hell to see the back of him, £26m is derisory for one of the world's best strikers. He's worth double that at least in today's market.

I guess, theoretically, we can keep him and he would have to perform his best especially with it being a WC year.

But I just don't think Conte is the type of manager who would include him in his plans after all he's said. And, in practice, I have a feeling that keeping him would not end well. He's a player who's level is reliant on his mood and keeping here unhappy probably won't help anyone and would only lower his value further.

the truth of the matter is Costa is not that good to command such fees in this situation. I don't know if i am the only one who sees it. Everyone saw how good he can be and how crap he can be, and the crap seems to outweigh the good. Lets take  Costa(bayern) for example. Bayern don't want him but they can command not less than 50m euros for him. look at James(madrid), it is fair to say he has no plans in real madrid, but he can command not less than 60m pounds. Another example is Salah. Roma need to sell in order to avoid fair play penalties on 30 june but they are commanding 40m euros for him because he is that good.

Now back to costa, every player can have crap periods but some players can't afford such periods or their value drops. Hazard can have a whole crap season and be sold for 80m pounds and i dont think costa can do same.

 if you where an owner of any big club would you pay 40m+ for costa in this current situation. No. Lets say it was the other way round and that chelsea are going to buy Costa from Atletico would you be happy as a fan if chelsea are going to pay the asking price of 50m when the club want him sold.

I see where you are coming from mate. I don't think anyone outside of Chelsea fans actually thinks Costa is 'world class'....whatever that means!

But regarding prices, the market is almost completely random, especially with new TV and sponsorship deals almost every year. We could 100% get 50m for Costa if say a club like PSG wanted him. I mean we almost got - what was it? 60m? 70m?- for him in Jan from China. 

I think the days were 'market value' and selling prices of players were an indication of anything are probably behind us.

I think Atleti will want to make this relatively smooth, accept a decent price for him and lets all just move on. If they try to fuck with us and low ball I would almost rather we sit his ass down and just leave him to rot without playing as opposed to taking a shit price. Such a shame he is leaving like this and tarnishing all the fans memories of him.

This is asking for an AVB treatment.

At least now we know who has been causing the commotion in Chelsea is the immature costa and not Conte like Henrique and Co want us to believe

Sit on the bench then.

train with the under 21. More suitable to the mental age he's showing through all of this. Although U-7 would be more appropriate if we are being specific.

Knowing Diego he'd probably try to elbow and stamp on the U7s....

If he wants to leave for Atletico but can't until January just play him until then. He is still the best striker we have, even when/if Lukaku signs. Its Conte that doesn't want him remember not that Costa doesn't want to stay (he only wants to leave now hes been told hes not part of managers plans). I'm sure Conte wouldn't be stupid enough to make him train with the u21s, like some are suggesting he should do, instead of trying to utilize him at some point because he is still a great player when he wants to be and I think he'd walk into most of our rivals teams except maybe City and Tottenham. I reckon there will be another twist in the tale yet, I am honestly surprised Man United haven't put a bid in for him considering they are also wanting Matic who seems to be out of favour (which selling to them is a huge mistake regardless).

All gone silent since the Textgate, hasn't it? 

Wouldnt be surprised if he and Conte kissed and made up. New contract on the way! :)

Honestly if Conte and Costa can reconcile that would be ideal at this point. I was in favor of him of leaving when it looked like his sale would have funded his replacement. That is not happening with China out of the picture, and Alti are not paying big for a player that they know will only accept move to them.

Then I suppose he'll have no trouble taking a wage decrease so that Atletico can pay the required transfer fee.  Good for him.

Atlético Madrid are close to re-signing Diego Costa, on the express wishes of Diego Simeone, for the 2017-18 season. [AS]

Atlético now have to reach middle ground with #Chelsea, as in Costa's mind, he's already half the way back to being a rojiblanco again. [AS]

Atlético feel the best solution would be for Costa to train with the first team squad for four months until he is eligible to play. [AS]

Atletico Madrid wanted to sign Lacazette despite ban but Simeone preferred Costa. Still to agree deal with Chelsea though for the striker.
