Rumours linking Diego Costa and a move to China are back again, as the season is nearing its end.

The Chelsea target man hasn’t been in good form of recent, but he still has the backing of his manager, and Conte has laughed off the rumours linking him with China.

When asked about the Costa rumours in his press conference, Conte laughed, saying: “The most important thing for us is to be focused on the present and continue to do what we are doing until now, to be focused and keep the concentration and to finish a good season for us and then want to do something extraordinary, for me the players and the club.

“In this moment it is very important for the club because we started to build a foundation. To fight for the title and play in the semi-final it means together we are doing a great job, but we are only at the start of this job.”
