Antonio Conte has come under heavy criticism following his loss to Arsenal in the FA Community Shield game and most of the Blues fans have called on the Italian tactician to rescind on his decision to drop Brazil born Spain striker Diego Costa from his team.
Costa received a text message from Conte during the summer that he no longer fits the plans of Antonio Conte’s Chelsea. He has returned to Brazil, training alone and is heavily linked with a move to AC Milan and Atletico Madrid.
Costa has struggled to get a club to sign him. AC Milan wants the striker on permanent deal but he wants to join them temporarily before rejoining Atletico Madrid, who are currently serving a transfer ban, in January.
However, Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has drop a huge hint that the player may be lacing his boots for Chelsea this season, with claims that he has been thinking about the player, reports the Express.
speaking at the launch of the Premier League, Conte said
“I think a lot about Costa.
“I think I was very clear in the past and I think now it’s not important to repeat.
Chelsea have signed Alvaro Morata to lead their attack but the recent display of the Spanish striker leaves so much to be desired. He is struggling to adapt to the English league and it may take him time to bed into the squad of the Blues..
Chelsea are the current holders of the Premier League and they may not be able to stage a strong title defence without a potent striker.
Should Costa be brought back, what do you think?
