Diego Costa’s brother, Jair, has revealed Costa has ‘many offers’ on the table with the 28-year-old striker set to leave Chelsea after Antonio Conte told him he wasn’t part of his plans for next season.

His brother also revealed Costa won’t move to China this summer because he wants to make Spain’s squad for next year’s World Cup.

When asked about the possibility of Diego playing for Brazilian club Palmeiras, Jair Costa told Yahoo Esportes via Evening Standard: “To be honest, now, I find it very difficult. Many friends called me in the last hours to ask about it, but Diego did not comment on that.

“Diego, fortunately, has many offers. I cannot say how many there are, but they exist.”

When asked about Diego moving to China, Jair Costa said: “I think it’s very unlikely, because there is the World Cup next year and Diego Costa wants to be there.”

“Diego has a great affection for Atletico, but there is nothing certain so far. We have to wait and see what will happen.”
