Reports have it that Diego Costa is close to signing a new contract at Chelsea that will make him the highest paid player at Stamford Bridge.
Not too long ago, it was talks about Costa and China, and now he’s on the verge of signing a new contract.
Antonio Conte, in his pre-match press conference, didn’t give too many details as to whether Costa is close to signing a new contract.
Rather he said: “I don’t know about this situation [a new contract for Diego Costa].
“It’s very important to be focused on the present and not look too far ahead. At the end of the season we’ll see the situation. I’m confident [he wants tostay]but now it’s important to keep great concentration for the present, which is tomorrow’s game against Wolves. We must go into the next round.”
