The Spanish striker was acquired from Real Madrid over the summer to help fill the striking void created by worldwide team-mate Diego Costa.

Atletico had been attempting to acquire Costa from Chelsea for weeks now, but the West London side was unwilling to talk to the Spanish club until he returned to England.

Marca claim that "a fee of around 60 million euros is being discussed, which would make Costa the most expensive signing in Atleti history", though there is some suggestion that the deal could include significant add-ons.

Additionally, none of the council's five permanent members - the United States, Britain, France , Russia and China - must veto it. Australia would also continue its own regime of sanctions against 31 entities and 37 individuals from North Korea.


But an agreement now would allow Costa to train with Atletico until he can be registered in January, rather than continuing to work out alone in Brazil as he has done for the past three months.

Having left Los Rojiblancos for Stamford Bridge in 2014 after winning La Liga, Costa has repeatedly expressed a desire to return to Madrid throughout the summer.

Chelsea were reluctant to be held to ransom by Atletico and had tried to offload Costa elsewhere, though his lack of fitness was a barrier - hence why they pleaded with him to return to training in Cobham.

With 2018 a World Cup year, Costa will have six months to prove to Spain manager Julen Lopetegui he is worth a place in the squad, should they reach Russian Federation.

At the end of last season Blues manager Antonio Conte informed Costa that he would not be part of his first-team plans going forward, clearing the way for him to find a new club over the summer.
