The Blues boss had been linked with a return to Italy after just one season at Stamford Bridge and warned in May he did not want to be separated from his family for long.

Costa was granted extra time off by the Blues and has missed the start of pre-season training after the 28-year-old revealed in June that he was not part of Conte's plans.

"When you're the striker of a top team this is what you live with and they will have to cope with it".

Morata scored 20 goals in 43 apperances in all competitions last season for Madrid after returning from Juventus, but was allowed to leave the club by Zinedine Zidane.

The very first genuine chance came 6 mins later on as Willian incepted a loosened pass from Ainsley Maitland-Niles as well as reached the edge of the location prior to striking his left-foot shot simply broad. It's a great signing for us and I think he can bring a lot of his qualities into the team. The striker still has work to do to become a player considered good enough to lead the Chelsea attack, though.

But because Cristiano Ronaldo was (and still is) untouchable, Karim Benzema has been Ronaldo's best workmate, and Gareth Bale was, until this manic summer of inflated fees, the world-record signing.

Very few saw this coming for Diego Costa, most especially when Chelsea equivocally denied him the opportunity to move mid-season to China for a mouth-watering transfer sum and wages.

He told the Italian media: 'I'm proud to wear this shirt, I've bought into an important project here and I'm happy to be here.

So here we have a player of match-winning quality, traded in and out and roundabout.

Abel Braga, Fluminense head coach: "He is a very good player, an aggressive striker".

Tiemoué Bakayoko was lured in for £40 million ($66 million) to pair up with N'Golo Kante in defensive midfield, with Cesc Fabregas as the second choice.

Chelsea star Pedro has been sent back to London for further tests after he suffered a concussion and facial cuts against Arsenal on Saturday (July 22). This week we had two intense games as well but for us it's better than playing weaker teams.
