Diego Costa Would Only Leave Chelsea For One Club

But Costa says he would only leave Chelsea for one club in the future - that being his former employers Atletico Madrid.

Costa, who joined Chelsea from Atletico in 2014, added of his future: "I'm very calm, the only conversation I've had is with the club, for them to call my people to know what's going to happen. Batshuayi may stay because he's young and I could be leaving".

"I do not know - that's a decision for the club", Costa said.

"The whole world knows that Atletico is the only club I would go to".

Costa is about to join up with Spain for games against Colombia and Macedonia and cited his ambition to play in next year's World Cup finals in Russian Federation as a key reason to avoid China.

Chelsea are expected to sign at least one new striker this summer transfer window, and with the rumours of Alvaro Morata fading away recently, re-signing Romelu Lukaku would make a lot of sense.

Chelsea striker Diego Costa has rubbished claims of lunch meetings with Chinese club officials during the season. But only to where I'm willing to go'.

'There are possibilities if I carry on playing and scoring (at the highest level).

With the win, Arsenal salvaged a disappointing season in which it failed to qualify for the Champions League for the first time in two decades. I hope I can carry on playing, there is a World Cup next year and I hope to be there, ' he said.

Chelsea dominated the entire Premier League season, ending with the title with a seven point difference to second placed Tottenham.

Do you think it's a coincidence that Costa is seemingly linking himself with Atletico?

Atletico, who finished third in La Liga this season, are now banned from registering new players in the upcoming transfer window due to irregularities in the singing of players under the age of foreign minors.
