Diego Costa Casually Confirmed The End Of His Chelsea Career After Spain-Colombia

Diego Costa Casually Confirmed The End Of His Chelsea Career After Spain-Colombia

Diego Costa revealed that he'll leave Chelsea in the summer after Spain's 2-2 draw with Colombia.

Spain needed a late equaliser from Manchester United target Alvaro Morata to salvage a draw with Colombia, for whom Falcao broke the goalscoring record with his 27th, but an entertaining game was overshadowed by the revelations which followed as Costa spoke to the Spanish media.

Costa straight-up told the assembled media that Antonio Conte has told him he's not part of Chelsea's plans next season, confirming the narrative which has surrounded Costa's Chelsea stint since last January.

Costa told reporters:

I have received a message from Antonio Conte saying that he does not count on me for the next season

Everyone knows where I want to play.

And that's that then.

Naturally, Costa's exit rolls out a red carpet of sorts for Everton's Romelu Lukaku, who revealed this week that he has already reached an agreement with a new club.

A boyhood Chelsea fan, Lukaku was sold by José Mourinho in 2014 for £28m, but will now likely get a second chance to establish himself at Stamford Bridge for considerable more money.
