Diego Costa is close to a return to his former club Atletico Madrid, and Felipe Luis, another player who has made the same trip from Atletico Madrid to Chelsea and back to Atletico, has hailed the signing of the 28-year-old.

He told Mundo Deportivo: “I am proud that the club is doing all this. An impressive stadium, wanting to grow more and more, to be up top, to fight for all titles.

“I say I am proud because a great effort has been made to bring one of the three best strikers in the world. Wherever he’s gone he has made history, he has been champion.

“He comes to triumph and fight for something big and make us all better around him. I’m very glad that my friend is back here and now we welcome him in the best possible way.”

Felipe Luis spent one season at Chelsea and was impressive as a left-back as Chelsea went on to win the Premier League title in the 2014/15 campaign under Jose Mourinho.

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
