Chelsea look to have sent a signal to Atlético Madrid over the future of Diego Costa as Los Rojiblancos seek to bring the player back to the Vicente Calderón.

The 27-year-old striker stars in the publicity campaign used by the West London club to advertise their new Adidas third kit, which was unveiled on Friday.

And with the Blues resistant to Atleti's attempts to prise Costa away from Stamford Bridge, his central role in the launch appears to be a further indication that he's very much part of their plans ahead of the coming season.
