Diego Costa was reportedly unsettled during the summer, and was eager to return back to his former club Atletico Madrid.
The Spanish international finally stayed at the club, and he has revealed what made him to stay.
When asked about his summer turmoil, Costa said: “Yes, yes. I was about to leave.
“I had the possibility to go to Atletico because of a few things — the family, the life I have there — but not because of Chelsea.
“Here, there’s a lot of love with the supporters, with the people, so I’m very happy here, I’m very content.”
“The people here love me a lot.
“There was one thing I wanted to change for family reasons but, well, it wasn’t to be and I continue to be happy here.
“It was important too that the manager, from the very first minute, said he counted on me.”
