Chelsea striker Diego Costa is set to leave Stamford Bridge this summer after the striker revealed Chelsea boss Antonio Conte told him via a text message that he wasn’t part of his plans for next season.
Chelsea winger Pedro in an interview with Cadena Sar radio revealed Costa is an important player for Chelsea who is feared by defenders and scores with ease.
“We will see what happens to Diego but we don’t know,” Pedro said.
“He is obviously a very important player in attack for us. He has scored the majority of the goals for us this season.
“He is a player feared by defenders because he is fast. He scores with ease.
“Diego gives you an added strength and more so in this league, because he is strong, he scores and he has good physical condition.
“If eventually it is confirmed that he will not continue with us, it will be a very big loss for us. It’s early days but I hope as a player and friend that he can stay with us.”
