Former Chelsea striker Diego Costa is a free agent after his Atletico Madrid contract was terminated last month.
Despite struggling with injuries and form since, Costa is demanding a huge salary to join any interested club.
Former Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas, now at Marseille, has revealed Costa’s huge wage demands.
AVB said: “First of all, Diego Costa earns 16 million [euros] gross every year, it’s the first thing that we should recognise.
“I received a WhatsApp message from an unknown number telling me that Diego Costa wanted to come to OM. I thought it was a joke.”
“He’s one of the best strikers in the world, [but we are] going to look for something else. We cannot pay this salary.”
