Diego Costa reportedly demanded wages of £300,000-a-week during contract negotiations to extend his current Chelsea current but Abramovich is only willing to offer him £225,000.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has now insisted it’s important Diego Costa focuses on finishing the season strongly and not a contract extension.

“No, I think now is better to be focused and concentrate on the present, not the future,” Conte said when asked if he’d like Chelsea to offer Costa a new contract now.

“Now it’s important he has these four months in a very strong way and then we’ll see.

“It’s important now to be focused on the present and not see too far (into the future), in my opinion.”
