Transfer Update: Diego Costa

By Keegan Kruger - Jul 29, 2017 01:03 PM @KeeganKruger

Chelsea striker Diego Costa's future is still unclear, but some headway seems to have been made as he looks to leave the 2016/17 Premier League champions.

The Spain international has been told by Antonio Conte that he is free to look for another club as he will not be needed in the upcoming season.

The forward is said to want to return to Atletico Madrid if possible, but with the Spanish side's transfer ban, he will need to wait for the next window to make that move happen.

Serie A side AC Milan have reportedly enquired about the striker in recent days, but this would apparently only be a loan deal.

Milan chairman Marco Fassone did not say too much about the rumours linking the forward with his club, but did confirm they have been in touch with the player's agent.

"Diego Costa is a great player, but he is a Chelsea player and I would prefer to avoid talking about players from other teams," Fassone said, as quoted by the Daily Mail.

"We went to see Jorge Mendes; there is a lot you can talk to him about. Costa is a great player but he is of Chelsea. That's all."

The 28-year-old has made 120 appearances for the Blues, scoring 58 goals and assisting 24 further strikes.
