To many, this might be Diego Costa’s last season as a Chelsea player. Since his reported bust-up with Antonio Conte, many reports tend to suggest that the Spain international will leave Stamford Bridge for China at the end of the season.

However, Conte believes the star forward will remain at the club.

“Diego is a really important player. The situation is very clear,” he told the BBC’S Premier League show.

“He’s very happy to stay with us, he’s very happy to fight for the title.”

When asked if he thought Costa would stay for some time, Conte replied: “I think so.

“I see him every day and I see his commitment, his behaviour – he’s very involved in the team. I think he loves this club.”
