Chelsea striker Diego Costa is reportedly considering a reconciliation with Chelsea to save his World Cup dream after his failed move due to Atletico Madrid’s inability to agree a fee with Chelsea according to Daily Express.
Costa is currently in Brazil and refusing to return to Chelsea but the striker has been urged by Atletico Madrid to settle his dispute with Chelsea so a deal can be agreed in January.
According to the report by Daily Express, Costa has been urged by close friends to return to England to settle his affairs with Chelsea.
“There will have to be a reconciliation between Diego and Chelsea,” a source close to Costa told Daily Express.
“Diego will have to come back to England, because he does not want his career to end with him back in Brazil like this.”
Costa is also being reportedly told by those close to him to consider dropping the legal action he has begun against Chelsea.
A friend of Costa reportedly told Daily Express: “Diego has no grounds to sue Chelsea. But Chelsea do have grounds to sue Diego.”
Costa desperately wants to play in next summer’s World Cup for Spain and with the 28-year-old still in Brazil, his chances of doing that are getting smaller every day.
