Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone finally has his favorite striker back at the club.Costa helped the team win the 2013 Copa del Rey before topping that the following season with the Spanish league title -- making Atletico the only team other than Barcelona or Real Madrid to win the competition in the last 13 years.Costa also led Atletico to the first of two Champions League finals in the last four years, but he was forced to abandon the 2014 final early on due to injury and Atletico lost 4-1 in extra time to Madrid.In the three years Costa was at Chelsea, Atletico only won the minor 2014 Spanish Super Cup.Atletico tried several times to find a replacement for Costa.Costa will slot in beside forward Antoine Griezmann, the team's most creative player and its top goal scorer in recent campaigns who is reportedly being pursued by other clubs, including Barcelona and Manchester United.The additions of Costa and Vitolo may mean Atletico will look to move one or more of its forwards.
