Diego Costa is still pushing for a move away from Chelsea, despite being advised earlier in the season to return to Stamford Bridge.
The striker has been on strike and has refused to return to Chelsea. Conte told the striker via text message in May that he is no longer part of his plans and the striker became furious, subsequently refusing to return to the club.
Costa is holding out for a move back to Atletico Madrid but the Spanish giants haven’t been able to agree a price with Chelsea for his transfer yet.
According to the sun via the Mirror, Costa has taken another step towards leaving Chelsea, selling his fleet of cars as he hopes to complete a move to Atletico soonest.
The striker reportedly sold his house few weeks ago and selling his BMW and Mercedes is another indication that he doesn’t intend to return to Chelsea.
Although, Costa was included in Chelsea’s Premier League squad, there is this belief that he is unlikely to feature for Conte again.
Costa scored 20 league goals for Chelsea last season and helped the club lift the league title. He was so crucial that he was the player who won the most points for any team throughout last season.
