Diego Costa‘s brother has confirmed that the Chelsea striker is determined to leave Stamford Bridge after falling out with manager Antonio Conte:
“Diego, fortunately, has many offers” Jair is quoted to have said by Brazilian media.
“I cannot say how many there are, but they exist.”
“To be honest, right now that is very difficult, many friends have called me up in the last few hours to ask me about that [report] but Diego has not said anything about this”.
When asked about a possible move to Brazil on loan until January 2018, Costa’s brother claimed: “He is a Palmeirense [fan] even though me and my father support Sao Paulo.”
“A move to China is very difficut because next year is the World Cup and Diego wants to be there”.
