Forza Atleti

Players often swap shirts at the end of historic football
matches, but Diego Costa has taken the custom to new heights.

The striker, still contracted to Premier League club Chelsea,
filmed himself partying in an Atletico Madrid shirt on Instagram Live on Sunday.

The 28-year-old was reportedly “told by message” in
June that he is surplus to Chelsea manager Antonio Conte’s

In a message to Chelsea teammate and fellow Spaniard, Cesc
Fabregas, during the Instagram broadcast, Costa said: “Give Conte a hug!

Though Costa is yet to leave the club, his video is surely proof
that his loyalties now lie elsewhere. But he’ll have to wait if
he wants to join Athletico.

The Spanish club is
banned from registering new players
after breaking rules
introduced to prevent the child trafficking of youth footballers.

It could still sign the €79.5 million (£70
million)-rated Costa but the player would not be able to compete
in any Atletico games until the ban is over, in January.

Costa is barred from Chelsea’s
pre-season preparations
as the club hopes to find the player
a new club. He has been passing the time by quad biking. He has
also holidayed in Lagarto, Brazil.
