The two clubs agreed on fee on Thursday and the player arrived in Madrid on Friday to complete a move back to Los Rojiblancos.

Costa and Conte had a falling out, and the striker has not featured in one game this season but the coach has thanked the want-away striker.

"We want to thank him for what he did with this club," Conte was quoted as saying by FourFourTwo.

"We wish him all the best for the future. I don't forget that we won together last season.

"I repeat, for sure, we want to thank him for his effort last season with us, but not only last season but in the period he played for Chelsea."

I think Chelsea treated him like rubbish and they seem to forget that he is the reason they won the league last season

Conte will regret of letting Costa leave as the team is current playing in the UCL where they will need every single player available as games comes in midweek and weekend. A coach with his clear mind in this situation,mustn't have got rid of Costa as he's a proven goalscorer and if you look at all the strikers that are left at Chelsea no one come close to Diego Costa sure he will be missed. All I can say is please Costa come back to the team in future if possible
