Forced to find a new club, the Nigeria global was, according to a former Chelsea youth player, treated "worse" than Diego Costa by the former Juventus manager.

Costa was interviewed at home in Brazil on the same day Chelsea lost 3-2 to Burnley on the opening day of the season.

At the moment they value Costa at £34m and Chelsea want £59m so there is little hope of a compromise in the coming weeks.

However, the 28-year-old has since then moved to Brazil, his birth country, and accused Chelsea of treating him "like a criminal", refusing to rule out legal action.

Diego Costa has been a crucial cog in Chelsea's run to a pair of Premier League titles over the last three seasons, but his relationship with the club seems to have soured.

Chelsea and Conte have previously insisted that the decision for Costa to leave this summer was made in January, with both the player and his agent, Jorge Mendes, aware.

"I don't understand how players can get away with that behaviour", Wright told BBC Radio.

"Surely he's got to come back here, so if the manager changes his mind, he's there".

Costa joined Chelsea from Atletico in July 2014.

"He's earning a fortune at Chelsea".

Sky Sports pundit Terry Gibson said he believes Costa will be reunited with former team Atletico Madrid. "Can Atletico Madrid even afford him?"

"How painful he didn't give Mikel the chance to say goodbye to fans who have stood by him for ten and half seasons".

The crash happened after one person was killed at the rally, when a auto ploughed into a crowd of anti-racism protesters. Demonstrators are still staging rallies around the city, and reports say a auto crashed into a group of protesters.

Atlético are aware that they can not force the issue and have to wait for a solution to be reached between Chelsea and Costa, an outcome that seems increasingly distant with the player in Brazil and Chelsea's minds elsewhere. The player has been long associated with a move to Liverpool, but the Merseyside club have dithered and stalled since being reprimanded for their initial approaches - so much so that they now appear to have cooled their interest.
