Former Chelsea striker Diego Costa won’t make a return to Stamford Bridge when Chelsea and Atletico Madrid meet in the Champions League.

This is because Costa’s contract with Atletico Madrid has been terminated.

“Atletico de Madrid and Diego Costa have reached an agreement for the termination of the striker’s contract, which was to end on June 30, 2021,” a statement on Atletico’s official website reads.

“The striker asked to leave the club for personal reasons a few days ago and on Tuesday signed the termination of his contract. The club thanks Diego Costa for his dedication during these years and wishes him well in the next stage of his professional career.”
