Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa will now discuss personal terms with Chelsea, as he was able to pass the medical examination with flying colours.
The west Londoners bid of £32million proved too much for the Rojiblancos as the Brazil-born Spanish international is likely to don the blue uniform next season.
He turned heads during the 2013/14 term after helping Atleti clinch the La Liga crown for the first time in almost two decades, while also leading them to a second-place finish in the Champions League.
The 25-year-old accounted for a total of 36 goals and 7 assists in 51 appearances for the capital-based outfit.
Blues boss Jose Mourinho is desperate to bring in a world-class striker like Costa because his return campaign at Stamford Bridge fell short of any silverware due to a lack of scoring output.
