Chelsea confirmed on Thursday afternoon that they had reached an agreement with Atletico Madrid over the striker.

Taking to Instragram to say farewell to his old teammate, former Chelsea skipper Terry wrote: “Good Luck @diego.costa in your next journey my friend.

“An unbelievable player and one of the nicest and funniest guys I have met in football, playing against him in training and games was an absolute nightmare, one of the best and underrated players I have played with and against."
