Chelsea are not happy with Atletico Madrid‘s very public pursuit of striker Diego Costa and have already sent two letters to the Spanish giants warning them they could report Diego Simeone’s side to FIFA.
Costa joined the Blues in the summer of 2014 from Atletico Madrid and proved to be a fantastic arrival to the Premier League in his debut season in English football.
The Spain international was one of the main reasons behind former manager Jose Mourinho’s third, and Chelsea’s fourth, Premier League title as he scored 20 goals in 26 appearances.
However, despite finishing as the Blues’ top goalscorer last season with 12 goals in 28 league games, Costa has been heavily tipped to move on this summer with a possible return to the Vicente Calderon on the cards.
New Chelsea manager Antonio Conte confirmed this week that he was unsure where Costa’s future lay, but there is a growing feeling at Stamford Bridge that the Blues are not happy with the whole transfer saga.
The Times have reported that the west London outfit are not happy with Atletico Madrid’s public pursuit of their striker, with a number of comments being made by the La Liga side’s hierarchy to media outlets.
The aforementioned report goes on to reveal that Chelsea have already sent two legal letters to the Spanish club threatening to report them to Fifa for attempting to unsettle the 27-year-old forward.
Meanwhile, many supporters feel Chelsea could cope in the wake of Costa’s potential departure, after Michy Batshuayi was snapped up this summer to compliment the likes of Bertrand Traore and Loic Remy.
