Diego Costa Set To Go To Extreme Lengths To Force Chelsea Exit

Diego Costa Set To Go To Extreme Lengths To Force Chelsea Exit

The Spain international's lawyer last week said former club Atletico are the only club his client would join, despite their Federation Internationale de Football Association transfer ban meaning they can not register new players until January 2018.

However, Costa is seemingly desperate to return to Atleti, and manager Diego Simeone reportedly told the Madrid club's board he wants the forward, who Chelsea value at around £50 million, per Simon Johnson in the Evening Standard.

Diego Costa will hand in a formal transfer request to Chelsea as he looks to resolve his future before the end of the transfer window.

And the Argentine says he is satisfied with the group of players at his disposal as an indication that Costa might need to find another club.

The 28-year-old Spain global had a productive 2016/17 at Chelsea, driving their successful Premier League title charge with 20 goals.

The Spain global spearheaded Chelsea's title-winning campaign last season, but has been frozen out by Antonio Conte who took a decision on Costa's future as far back as January.

Trump could disrupt careful diplomatic messaging on North Korea
Reports suggested North Korea mastered a technological hurdle needed to strike the USA with a nuclear missile. US defense officials have said there are few good military options to deal with North Korea .

"The lawyer's argument that Antonio as a coach has forced the player out by text message in June is just nonsense".

Arsenal should attempt to sign Chelsea outcast Diego Costa despite his abrasive, troublesome nature, according to Gunners legend Ian Wright. This shows that they knew about and were in agreement with the release of Diego Costa and the way it was done.

Simeone also admits he is not overly concerned about the transfer ban, adding: "As for me, there's been no other discourse than to improve the group I now have".

"I don't want to comment too much", he said. The player and his agent knew this decision and evidently the lawyer has not been properly informed. For sure I don't understand why lawyers are getting involved.

"These are situations which you can not control", he said.

Victor Moses is free to play despite his dismissal in May's FA Cup final when Arsenal beat Chelsea 2-1.
