Chelsea Star To Hand In Transfer Request

Chelsea Star To Hand In Transfer Request

By Keegan Kruger - Aug 04, 2017 11:03 AM @KeeganKruger

A Chelsea star will reportedly hand in a formal transfer request in order to leave the club in the coming days, according to his lawyer.

Pep Considering Huge Swap Deal To Get Alexis?

Spain international Diego Costa is said to no longer be in Antonio Conte's plans at Stamford Bridge, with the pair having reportedly butted heads on several occasions last season.

The striker is apparently keen to rejoin his former club Atletico Madrid, but with the Spanish side currently serving a transfer ban, this seems an unlikely move.

Costa's lawyer, Ricardo Cardoso, has now revealed he is seeking ways to get his client out of the club.

"We are going to activate all the legal mechanisms (to secure Costa's exit) and formally present a transfer request," Cardoso told  Spanish outlet EFE.

"In three seasons at Chelsea, he won two championships and was the decisive players in those victories.

"When he was already with the Spain national team (for a friendly against Colombia last June) and before travelling to Brazil to enjoy his holidays, he was released from Chelsea by SMS by the coach Antonio Conte.

"Obviously, this release, in the way it was done, and how it became known by everyone, was unfair treatment and a lack of respect to the player on the part of Conte, which is unacceptable and inexcusable.

"Chelsea has not just not denied nor corrected the coach, either in public or private, but instead renewed his contract. This shows that they knew about and were in agreement with the release of Diego Costa and the way it was done. Such discriminatory behaviour makes it impossible for Costa to return to Chelsea while Antonio Conte is a coach.

"There is no way that he can continue to play for Chelsea, a message which has been communicated various times to those in charge there."
