The Guardian revealed how the relationship of Antonio Conte and Diego Costa fell out, with the Italian coach ending telling he Spanish striker that he was not in his plans anymore.
It is understood that Conte sent a goodwill message to all his players wishing them a happy time during holidays and reminding them to stay in shape during this period.
Diego Costa fired off a reply, Conte didn’t like the tone and got irritated, the exchange went on until the Italian told the forward he was not fitting in his plans anymore.
The Spanish star then informed the Chelsea board sending them the messages and claiming the club will now have to sell him on his terms, this is when Marina Granovskaia told him to leave negotiations to her.
Now Chelsea are forced to sell a player to a fee that is reduced respect to the £76m that were offered by Tianjin Quanjin last January and the club will lose millions since the fee will be heavily reduced after Costa’s revelation who made th club and Conte furious.
