Chelsea boss Conte: Will I shake hands with Diego Costa...?

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte says he's prepared to shake hands with Diego Costa next week.

Costa is set to complete a £67million move back to previous club Atletico Madrid ahead of their Champions League group-phase showdown with the Blues in the Spanish capital on Wednesday.

The Spain international, who will rejoin Atletico initially on loan and is not eligible to play until January, is expected to attend the game.

Asked if he would shake his hand then, manager Conte said: “Yeah, I have no problem."
