The return of Jose Mourinho to Chelsea for a second spell heralded a new beginning for the Blues and Brazil born Spain international Diego Costa was fervently at the centre of Mourinho’s plan.
Costa became an impact player as he enjoyed a barnstorming 2014/2015 debut season in which he scored 20 League goals in 26 appearances. However, over time, his temperament got the better of him and he was found stirring discord on the pitch more than trying to score goals.
Alas, the Spaniard striker has been fired by Chelsea manager Antonio Conte but he has rejected a move to Seria A side AC Milan, and he is set to stay put at Stamford Bridge despite being told to look for a club, this is according to the Express.
Costa received a text message from the manager of Chelsea Antonio Conte that he no longer fits his plans for the upcoming season and he was heavily linked with a return to his former side Atletico Madrid. Nonetheless, the Rojiblancos are currently serving a transfer fan and are unable to sign any player.
AC Milan had offered him a permanent deal but Costa is opting to join them on a loan deal before realising his dream of joining the Rojiblancos in January. He is now staying put at Chelsea.
According to the report, the Blues are now forced to pay his reported £185,000-a-week wages until he secures a deal away from the Club next year.
Chelsea had signed Alvaro Morata in his stead but Costa may just be involved in training sessions alone.
