Diego Costa - Conte Is Not Counting On Me Next Season

Diego Costa who with Chelsea got crowned Premier League champions of the 2016/17 Season, also  Chelsea's top scorer said he has been told by Antonio Conte that he won't be counted upon come 2017/18 season.

Costa scored 22 goals last season in all competitions but his future at the club looks blur, as the club plans on bringing Lukaku to Stanford Bridge.

"I had a simple little message on my mobile from Conte in which he said that he isn't counting on me for next season," Costa told the media following Spain's 2-2 friendly draw with Colombia on Wednesday

"It will be because I've done badly this year. It's a shame. I've forwarded the message on to the people at the club for them to decide but it's clear that the coach isn't counting on me and he doesn't want me there.

"I'm on the market and so I'm looking for a team. If the coach doesn't want you, you have to leave."

"It would be nice to go back to Atletico but I have to think everything over," he said. "There's a World Cup [in 2018] and I need to play. Being four or five months without playing is tough, but people know that I love my Atletico team-mates a lot, I love living in Madrid."
