Diego Costa has said he has nothing against Chelsea boss Antonio Conte as he readies himself to complete a return to Atletico Madrid.
Atletico have agreed a deal with Chelsea for the return of Costa, which sources have said is an initial loan with a commitment to buy for £58 million (€65.7m) at the end of the season.
Recently interviewed by Splash News in a Sao Paulo airport as he prepared to fly to Madrid, Costa said that he was not annoyed with the Chelsea boss.
“Not at all,” he said. “I have no regrets with anyone. I hold no grudge with anyone. Everything is fine.”
Asked if he had a message for the Chelsea fans, he said: “They know that I care a lot about them.”
