Transfer deadline day was barely up and running before Atletico Madrid looked to complete what would have been arguably the window’s biggest deal, and at Chelsea’s expense. The Mirror claim that they made two bids for Diego Costa today, one which included Jackson Martinez in a swap.

Now, if you missed it at the weekend, John Terry will be leaving Stamford Bridge this summer after failing to secure a new deal. The Chelsea captain has penned an emotional statement to fans, saying he had mentally accepted it.
