Ian Wright Hammers 'Disgraceful' Diego Costa Amid Chelsea Fall-Out

Diego Costa says he will keep the text from Antonio Conte saying he is unwanted at Chelsea

Costa, who scored a tally of 20 goals last season, helped Chelsea secure the Premier League title in Antonio Conte's debut season at the club.

The Spain global still has so much to offer at the very highest level though, and will surely be a huge asset to whichever club wins the race for his signature.

Costa, 28, has been told he can leave Stamford Bridge this summer and has no chance of resolving his future with the club after claiming he's been treated like a "criminal". The Telegraph also reported that Chelsea and Atletico have held talks regarding a potential Costa transfer, but in the meantime the Blues want their star striker contributing to their cause on the pitch. The reigning Premier League champions don't particularly want him around either but are insisting that he return to Stamford Bridge and train so as to make himself a more attractive proposition for a buyer.

Fresh reports indicate, though, that the club are open to welcoming him back into the side, but due to the fractured relationship with Conte, it is unlikely that he would be selected. "If I was Ronald Koeman or Jurgen Klopp I'd be on the phone to Chelsea trying to get that done", he added. Why won't they let me go if they don't want me?

Atlético are aware that they can not force the issue and have to wait for a solution to be reached between Chelsea and Costa, an outcome that seems increasingly distant with the player in Brazil and Chelsea's minds elsewhere. He has done a good job and I can see that, but as a person, no. They want to sell me to China or other teams. I'm not a criminal!

The Canadian government is not confirming the release yet, but did acknowledge that it sent a delegation to discuss the case. Warmbier arrived to the U.S.in a vegetative state and died six days after his release .

Costa has made it clear the only club he wants to join is Atletico, where he would be reunited with Diego Simeone in the Spanish capital.

Although the pair have returned to full training, it is unlikely they will be considered for the league match against Tottenham at Wembley on Sunday.

His situation has been complicated by his dream move back to Atletico Madrid being put on hold as they have a transfer embargo until January.

The 29-year-old then went on to explain Nigeria's manager "pleaded" with Conte to allow Mikel to play in the club's reserves in order to keep some fitness, but the manager even refused that request.
