Diego Costa has not played for Chelsea since defeat by Arsenal in the FA Cup final in May

Diego Costa says Chelsea are demanding a fee Atletico Madrid “can’t get near” for the Spain striker to complete his desired move back to his former club.

Costa, 28, remains in his native Brazil after being sent a text in June by boss Antonio Conte telling him he would not be part of the squad this year.

The Blues signed Costa from Atletico for a reported £32m in July 2014.

“When I came to Chelsea they paid a lot less compared to what’s being offered to them,” Costa told ESPN Brasil.

He added that if Atletico do not make a “big effort” to sign him then he “can’t keep on wanting” to play for Diego Simeone’s side.

“I know that this [big effort] will happen, but if it’s to pay the amount that Chelsea want it won’t be possible,” he said.
