Chelsea fullback Marcos Alonso admits the players expected Diego Costa to leave over the summer.

The former Chelsea striker eventually signed for Atletico Madrid in September after firing a series of insults at manager Antonio Conte.

Alonso told AS he was still in contact with Costa.

“Yes, from time to time I talk to him and now that he is in Madrid, which is my city, we talk from time to time,” he said.

Yes (his departure was inevitable), after how things happened, it seems that the only solution was for him to leave. It was a shame, because apart from being a great footballer he is a good friend of mine.

“I wish him well.”
