The Spain striker made an appearance at Atlético's training complex as his new/old team-mates began preparations for their Champions League tie against Chelsea.

Champions League

Atlético Madrid began their preparations to welcome Chelsea to the Wanda Metropolitano on Wednesday in the Champions League (20:45 CET). Following a fine 2-0 win over Sevilla, the rojiblanco squad trained on Sunday to recover from their exertions and now turn their attentions towards the visit of Conte's men at their new home. 

The Diego Costa situation

One notable attendee at the Sevilla game and training session was Diego Costa, who was unable to train with his new and old team-mates as he awaits his move from Chelsea to be completed.   

The Spain striker passed a medical held on Saturday and Sunday and Atlético Madrid are keen to finally close the agreement reached with Chelsea on Thursday and see Costa put pen to paper after weeks and months of toing and froing
