Chelsea striker Diego Costa is set to leave Chelsea this summer after Chelsea boss Antonio Conte told the player he wasn’t part of his plans for the forthcoming season.
Atletico Madrid have been strongly linked with a move for Costa but Serie A club AC Milan have emerged as contenders for the signing of Costa.
AC Milan CEO Marco Fassone revealed the Serie A club have held talks with Costa’s agent Jorge Mendes.
“I would prefer to avoid talking about players from other teams; Diego Costa is a great player, but a Chelsea player,” Fassone told Sky Sports.
“We went to see [Costa’s agent] Jorge Mendes; there is a lot you can talk to him about. Costa is a great player but he is of Chelsea. That’s all.”
