And, despite incredible amounts of money on offer from Chinese Super League side, Tianjin Quanjian, the 28-year-old has his heart set on a return to Atletico.

But the La Liga side are unable to register new players until January after Fifa upheld a transfer ban for the illegal signing of minors.

However, AS report a solution could be found with the striker moving to Besiktas until the start of 2018.

Costa would then return to Atletico, having played competitive football throughout the season immediately preceding the World Cup.

A recent Instagram post by the Chelsea ace was inundated with messages from fans of the Turkish club, writing: “Come to Besiktas.”

Costa is a hero among Atletico fans, having helped the club win the title in 2014 and reach the Champions League final, before joining Chelsea.
