Diego Costa back in Chelsea team but wants to leave in summer
Costa open to move to China but makes amends with Antonio Conte this week
January 18th, 2017
Diego Costa sent shockwaves through British football towards the end of last week when it emerged that the forward had fallen out with Antonio Conte.
It had initially been thought that Costa had played his final game in a Chelsea shirt, although Conte has been quick to state that the player simply incurred a back injury even if the majority feel as though that was a smokescreen.
Now Costa is back in the Chelsea squad and available for selection, although The Guardian are among the newspapers reporting that the Spanish international will be seeking pastures new in the summer.
Costa was reportedly close to a return to Atletico Madrid last summer and Diego Simeone might be looking for someone to replace Antoine Griezmann, while a potential move to China could still be on the cards.
For now, Costa is hoping to land a second Premier League winners’ medal and might be straight back into the first team for the visit of Hull on Sunday.
