Diego Costa and Antonio Conte’s end of season spat has taken the football world by storm after the Spain international revealed that the Chelsea boss told him to leave the club via a text message.

Is Costa eager to leave Chelsea this summer or is Costa just being Costa?

Costa has now shared a screenshot of his exchange with the manager with team-mates and staff – a move that will further infuriate Conte.

The Mirror Sport confirm that the Spain forward has shared the text exchange with team-mates and staff.

The message from the Italian boss to the player, confirmed by MirrorSport, read:

“Hi Diego, I hope you are well.

“Thanks for the seasono [sic] we spent together.

“Good luck for the next year but you are not in my plan.”

Hopefully, this dust settles quickly because it wouldn’t help Chelsea in the transfer market.
