After being “sacked” by Antonio Conte via sms Diego Costa is preparing his next move,  looking for another club.

Speaking after the Spain World Cup 2018 qualifier against Macedonia the ex Atletico Madrid striker praised AC Milan, a club with whom his agent, Jorge Mendes, spoke in the past weeks:

Milan are a great club, they’ve got a huge history,” he told reporters.

But today the Rossoneri officially announced the signing of Portuguese striker André Silva from Porto for € 38m plus add-ons, so it’s unlikely they will sign another expensive forward like Costa, as they’ve already spent € 100m on the market to sign four players ( Silva, Musacchio, Kessie and Ricardo Rodriguez).

Chelsea striker Diego Costa added fuel to fire following his recent admission about a farewell message received by manager Antonio Conte, who has reportedly told him he is not part of his plans at Stamford Bridge.

When asked about his future, the Spaniard told AS: “I do not know. I have a contract with Chelsea, they have to know what to do with me and I have to wait and know the decision that my club takes.

Anyway, Costa seems determined to leave the club this summer: “Things do not work in that way. The fight for the place has to be fair to stay and fight, but the fight is not fair and I have to leave.”

“I have a contract of two years with Chelsea, they have to decide. If they sell me, I will look for the best choice. Atletico is among them, it would not mean not playing, they can loan me out to some team in Spain, Brazil or wherever, but I have to play”.

“Everyone knows that I have a lot of affection for them. Of course I rule out China, I have to think about the World Cup. Atletico is a club that I have a lot of affection for, independently of whether I go there or not, I will continue to love them.”
