Diego Costa gives update on Chelsea situation

Conte doesn't want me at Chelsea: Costa

Following their recent takeover, the Italian giants are on the lookout for new signings as they try to challenge for the Serie A title, and could have the funds to bid for Costa.

Diego Costa's reply, less than effusive, was a simple "Ok".

"Antonio Conte has told me by message that I will not continue with Chelsea and that's it", Costa said, as quoted by the Sun.

He told the Spanish media after scoring in Spain's 2-1 World Cup qualifying win over Macedonia: "Things don't work like that". Despite all his problems with discipline, I believe Wenger can manage that as he's done with numerous players over the years.

And after pushing for a Chinese Super League switch in January, Costa is finally being granted his wish by Conte - although the player now protests he wants to stay put.

Paper Round's view: We're sure Costa has had a fair bit of interest; after all, he was one of the league's top scorers last season.

Former club Atletico are Costa's favoured next club but their transfer ban for the illegal signing of underage players complicates matters somewhat with any signing made this summer unable to be registered to play until January. "In life there are good and bad people".

"It seems I didn't have a good season. If the coach doesn't want you in his team, Chelsea have to sell me, and in the sales".

"Many friends called me in the last hours to ask about it, but Diego did not commented on that". "Thanks to God I'm not lacking teams [to join]", he said.

Asia has, however, been ruled out as a possible destination ahead of next summer's World Cup.

Costa has not hidden his intention to return to Athletico Madrid but revealed that the transfer ban now imposed on the club might be a stumbling block to any potential move.

"The aim was to get the three points and we knew it was going to be hard".

After all, it was only two months ago that the Belgian had an on-pitch argument where he "shushed" Everton captain Ashley Williams after the Welshman got frustrated at the Belgian's hold-up play.
