See how Chelsea announced Diego Costa transfer vs Matic transfer announcement

Diego Costa's time at Chelsea is up, after it was confirmed earlier today that the Blues had finally agreed a fee with Atletico Madrid for the sale of the Brazilian-born Spain international.

Costa has been surplus to requirements since the end of last season following a fall-out with boss Antonio Conte but Chelsea were unable to shift him off the books to his beloved Atletico in the summer window.

However, now a few weeks on from the transfer window closing, the two clubs have struck an agreement for cost to head back to the Spanish capital three years after swapping Madrid for West London.

He was hugely influential in the two Premier League title wins Chelsea achieved in 2014/15 and 2016/17 respectively, and scored 59 goals in 120 appearances.

Though his antics were not popular with neutrals, his ability to strike fear into opposition defences and turn up in the big games made him a huge hit with Chelsea fans.

But in a goodbye message posted on the official Chelsea website, the Blues make it seem like he was just another player at Stamford Bridge.

All Costa got was 30 words in which his contribution at the club was not mentioned at all, and the article merely informed fans that terms with Atletico had been agreed, and that he will now undergo a medical and go through personal terms with Diego Simeone's side for the second time in his career.

Granted, his relationship with the club strained after he went AWOL and was fined by the club as a result. But as pointed out by The Mirror, his message is nothing compared to the 711-word post Nemanja Matic, also a two-time Premier League winner at the club, received.

Despite moving to a rival in Manchester United, under former boss Jose Mourinho, Chelsea spoke glowingly of the Serbian and gave him a comprehensive tribute that ended with the words "we wish him well for the future".

A memorable stint with Chelsea has certainly ended on a sour note for Costa. Should know problems arise in his medical, and personal terms being agreed, he will return to Atleti, where he played between 2010 and 2014, scoring 64 times in 135 appearances and helping Los Rojiblancos to the 2014 La Liga title and 2013 Copa Del Rey as well as the 2014 Champions League final, where they were eventually beaten 4-1 by city rivals Real Madrid.

He will be unable to play until January, when Atletico's transfer ban expires.
