• Diego Costa Admits Chelsea Looking to Sell Him After Revealing Bad Relationship With Antonio Conte

    News Thu 8 Jun 2017

    Chelsea striker Diego Costa has revealed that Antonio Conte has told him that he is not needed at Stamford Bridge, admitting that he is looking around for a new team to play for next season. 

    ​Speaking after Spain’s 2-2 draw with Colombia on Wednesday night, the 28-year-old admitted that a move back to Atletico Madrid would be difficult, with the Spanish club’s transfer ban leaving them unable to register new players until January. 

    The former Brazil international said: “I’m a Chelsea player, but they do not want me there. Antonio Conte has told me by message that I do not follow at Chelsea and that’s it. Conte said he did not count on me for next season.

    “My relationship with the coach has been bad this season. It’s a shame, I’ve already forwarded the message to Chelsea people to decide. You have to find a team.”

    Costa finished last season as the Blues’ top scorer in the Premier League with 20 goals as they won the title for the second time in three years and, pressed on whether he would consider a return to Madrid, said: “Being five months without playing? 

    “I do not know, it’s complicated, but people know that I love Atletico a lot and that I love to live in Madrid. It would be nice to go back, but it’s difficult to be four or five months without playing. It’s a World Cup year and there are many things to think about. I need to play, just that.”
