Diego Costa's agent refuses to rule out AC Milan switch

Diego Costa's agent refuses to rule out AC Milan switch

So, Atletico Madrid is the frontrunner to re-sign Costa after he left them for Chelsea in 2014, and the Spanish worldwide doesn't seem too anxious about Atleti's transfer ban which means he would not be able to play for them until January if he signed this summer.

Diego Costa insists he will look for an exit route out of Chelsea after being told by manager Antonio Conte he is not in the Italian's plans for next season. But Atletico Madrid's transfer ban, which is in place until January, has made a deal hard to negotiate. I can not say how many there are, but they exist'.

"I feel very strongly about Atletico and I will continue to enjoy the club very much whether I go there or anywhere else".

Antonio Conte dumped Diego Costa with a 27-word text message which started with a cheerful greeting and ended with "you're not in my plans".

Chelsea have been linked with a move for former striker Romelu Lukaku from Everton and Costa accepts that Conte might want to move him on in order to bring in a new first-choice centre-forward. He was offered a chance to move to China in January, something that Chelsea rejected, and he recently ruled out moving there.

"My relationship with [Conte] has been bad this season and it is clear that he does not want me on the team". Many friends called me in the last hours to ask about it, but Diego did not comment on that.

Most of the casualties from the truck bombing were civilians, including women and children, officials have said. The Islamic State (IS) terrorist group, outlawed in Russian Federation , claimed responsibility for the attack.

But the former Atletico Madrid hitman is not interested in a big-money move to China.

"It will be complicated for me to stay without playing for 5 months but I do love Atletico and love the city of Madrid". If I sign for Atlético, it does not mean that I will not be able to play. I have to think about the World Cup.

Diego Costa is set to depart the club in the summer and the entry of Manchester United and Chelsea might just add some more spice to the transfer saga. "I'll have to find a team".

In an interview with Marca, he also confirmed that his relatioship with the manager has not been great.
