You Can Leave" Conte Tells Costa

Chelsea striker Diego Costa has confirmed that he won't be playing for the west London club next season. The Spain international has revealed that Blues manager Antonio Conte has texted him telling him that he won't be playing in his team next season

      Speaking after Spain's 2-2 draw in Colombia, he said: "Antonio Conte has told me by message that I will not continue with Chelsea and that's it.
"My relationship with the coach has been bad this season and it is clear that he does not want me on the team.
"I guess I have had such a bad season that I can't continue.
"Right now I'm a Chelsea player because I have a contract, but the coach does not want me there. I have to find a new team."
Costa has been strongly linked with a return to Atletico Madrid, but he says that a move to Atletico would be difficult because of their transfer ban.
He added: "Five months without playing? I do not know, it's complicated.
"But people know that I love Atletico a lot and that I love living in Madrid.
"It would be nice to go back, but it's difficult to go four or five months without playing and it's a World Cup year.
"There's a lot to think about. I need to play, that's all."
