Diego Costa’s Chelsea future has been thrown into doubt after the striker had a row with Chelsea boss Antonio Conte over his fitness.
According to a report by Daily Mail, Costa would miss Chelsea’s clash against Leicester City at the King Power stadium after failing to travel with the rest of the squad.
Costa reportedly informed Conte he was suffering from a back problem but members of Chelsea’s medical team were not convinced by Costa’s complaints.
The disagreement led to a falling out between Costa, Conte and Chelsea’s medical team.
According to a report by Metro UK, Conte reportedly told Diego Costa to “go to China” during the row between Conte and Costa.
Costa is Chelsea’s top scorer this season and reports of this row isn’t what Chelsea need at this time of the season as it could derail our title aspirations.
