Diego Costa says he holds no animosity towards Chelsea manager Antonio Conte as he prepares to complete his return to Atletico Madrid.Chelsea announced on Thursday that they had agreed to sell the Spain international back to Atletico for a fee understood to be over 50 million pounds, subject to personal terms and a medical.

Costa was deemed surplus to requirements by Conte in the summer, despite scoring 20 goals in 35 appearances last season as Chelsea cruised to the Premier League title.

The 28-year-old refused to return to Chelsea’s Cobham training base in August having failed to secure a move away from Stamford Bridge and instead remained in Brazil.

Costa has not played for 98 days since he appeared for Spain in a World Cup Qualifier against Macedonia in June.
