Costa: I am not in Conte's plans

"I don't know", Costa said when asked about his future by TVE.

However, he claims he has no option but to leave Stamford Bridge in the coming months after being told by Conte he has no future with the English champions.

"I have to leave Chelsea this summer because Conte has told me that he's not counting on me [for next season]".

In Atleti's case, there is the matter of bringing Diego Costa back to the club, three years after he left them for Chelsea.

The Blues are confident they can sign the diminutive winger - who played under Conte with the Italian national team - for around £45 million.

Subsequently in January, when Atletico Madrid's transfer ban ends, the two clubs can attempt to negotiate a swap involving Costa and Griezmann - a prospect that still looks bleak considering the broken relationship between Costa and Mourinho.

Spain, who are still unbeaten under Lopetegui, now turn their attention to September's potentially decisive match against Italy in Madrid, with only one automatic place for next year's tournament in Russian Federation available. It would be nice to go back to Atletico Madrid but it's hard to be four or five months without playing. The Live streaming of the FIFA World Cup Qualifier match is on ITV Player (UK), WatchESPN (U.S.). In all honesty, I would not mind having him at Arsenal.

"Now it is much easier". Chelsea have been frequently linked with an £80m move for Romelu Lukaku, a player they previously sold to Everton for £28m back in 2014.

Mustaqbalka Costa ayaa waxaa ku jiray shaki weyn xilli ciyaareedkii 2016 illaa 2017 oo dhan sababtoo ah kooxda ka ciyaarta horyaalka Chinese Super League ee Tianjin Quanjian iyo kooxdiisii hore ee Atletico Madrid ayaa xiiso joogto ah u muujinayey xiddigaan. He needed Costa up front and the striker ended the season with 20 goals in the Premier League.

The club also question the decision to make Diego Costa available for transfer on a sporting level, and the manner of delivering the news; through a blunt text message.

Who will Chelsea sign to replace Costa? Despite that speculation, Conte managed to keep Costa's head in the game. Now that it's known he is no longer part of Conte's plan, Chelsea's hand has been severely weakened.

Diego Costa's form has resonated Chelsea's results for the last 3 years.
