Diego Costa has now completed a move to Atletico Madrid and will join the Spanish giants in January, as Atletico has a transfer ban placed on them.
Chelsea captain Gary Cahill has hailed Costa for his performances during his three-year stay at Chelsea, as the 28-year-old helped the Blues win two Premier League titles over the last three years.
The Chelsea captain said: “All the Chelsea players wish Diego the very best.
“I’m sure he will go on to do fantastic things at Atletico. He is going to settle in there again.
“I can speak personally about my experiences with Diego and we won trophies together – it’s as simple as that.
“Everyone in their career moves on eventually. Whatever happened has happened, but for the period of time he was here, he was fantastic.
“We were successful together and I will take that, those great memories. People leave, but we don’t forget them and we don’t forget what they have done.”
