Chelsea striker Diego Costa insisted last week that he would only leave Chelsea for former club Atletico Madrid but that hasn’t stopped rumours from linking our striker to Serie A side AC Milan.

According to Evening Standard, AC Milan are considering making a bid for Diego Costa after Alvaro Morata ruled out a return to Serie A.

Morata is a target for Chelsea, although he claims he wants to stat at Real Madrid.

AC Milan are in the market for a top striker and Evening Standard claim the Serie A side are looking at Costa, who has two years left in his contract.

AC Milan would have to look elsewhere as Costa recently insisted he has no intention of leaving Chelsea.

“There’s only one team I’d go to if I have to leave here, only one,” Costa said.

“I have no intention of leaving, I’m very happy here, I have two years on my contract, but if the club want to sell me there is one club I would go to.

“Everybody knows the club I like. Atletico? Yes, everybody knows that, there’s no problem.

“I will remain (at Chelsea) if there is intention from the club and the coach for me to stay, but if they want to sell me to bring in another striker, I will go.”
