That man is their former star Diego Costa, who has struggled since leaving Stamford Bridge for the Spanish capital last season.
Costa was a big hit in his time at Chelsea, with Morata proving a poor quality replacement in the end after a dire spell in English football.
With Sky Sports now reporting Morata could be the next Blues attacker to make his way to Atletico, a number of the club’s fans are calling for the return of Costa.
It remains to be seen if this is at all realistic for Chelsea, but it would certainly be a popular choice if they could do it.
While Costa initially left west London under a bit of a cloud, he clearly remains highly thought of by these fans at least…
Atletico wants Morata? A swap deal with Costa is needed.

Looks like Morata is off to Atletico, can we have our Costa back ?

Alvaro Morata OUT.
Diego Costa IN.
That would be some deal #CFC

If we are going to sign an out of form striker, why not try a Costa for Morata swap? #SillySeason
