Atletico and Chelsea announced an agreement had been reached last Thursday and it has now been completed on the eve of the teams' Champions League Group C contest at the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano.

That is because if Costa made an appearance, he would become cup tied and unable to play for Diego Simeone's side in the competition until next season.

Chelsea are just coming into form with most of their first team players ready to go. I know Saúl well from the under-21 and he is a lovely footballer.

Chelsea right back Cesar Azpilicueta said Atletico has become a unsafe opponent thanks to its consistency.

The £300,000-a-week contract on the table will take the 26-year-old above Manchester United's Paul Pogba in the pay stakes.

"And for me it's important to make him understand that he is on the right path".

However, he opted to remain impartial over who he considered to be the better shot stopper, having worked with both during his time in the Spanish capital. The midfielder scored 16 goals in last season's league-winning campaign and Conte hopes to have him on the pitch for as long as possible tonight.

By January, the player will be 29 years of age and the "other side" of the supposed peak that a football player has, so attaining the level of fitness required, even with the help of the renowned Profe Ortega, is by no means a given. "When he plays as a full-back it's like we have three central defenders on the pitch and are stronger in the air". Atletico opened with a scoreless draw against Roma, but they have an excellent record against the Blues, especially at home. We respect Atletico, and we intend to give our very best. He is not only the Diego that is seen on the field.

"I think he's improving and his commitment has been very good during the transition".

So far, the Champions League has largely been a source of frustration and angst for Hazard. The Spanish teams dominate Europe, in general.

"They are a very tough opponent with a manager with the ability to tell them what he wants". We will try to change that dynamic.
