Chelsea want-away striker Diego Costa has delivered a positive verdict on Chelsea new boy Alvaro Morata, with claims that the Spaniard is a good bargain for the Premier League Champions, this is according to report.
Morata joined Chelsea from Real Madrid after a £60million deal was brokered between the La Liga holders and the Blues and he is expected to lead the attack of Chelsea this season.
Antonio Conte had dismissed Diego Costa from the squad of Chelsea as he claimed the player no longer fits his plans and Morata has been signed as a direct replacement for the Brazil born striker.
Costa has remained in exile in his native country Brazil after refusing to train with the reserves of Chelsea. Chelsea have asked him to train with the reserves of their club but he is staying put in his country and he has reportedly filed a suit against the Blues.
While Morata scored in Chelsea’s loss to Burnley in their Premier League kick-off game, Costa reckons that Morata will come good for the club.
‘Alvaro Morata is a great player,’ Costa told the Daily Mail. ‘He had a great season in Madrid and actually with the way this crazy transfer market is, I think they got a good price for a young and talented forward.’
Antonio Conte has come under heavy criticism for the way he dismissed Costa from his team and Costa has revealed that he has put that behind him even though he feels disappointed at the Italian tactician.
‘He will triumph at Chelsea, but there are ways of going about it. You don’t do it by text message. You should be honest and direct to someone’s face.’
He continued: ‘I was with the Spain national team, alone in my room, when it came through. It was a shock to get it like that. I was showing it to my team-mates and they could not believe how he had done it.
‘I was angry at the time. Now I am more calm. I have not deleted the message. If people accuse me of lying, I can show them. It was clear, saying that he didn’t count on me and wishing me the best for the future. Full stop.
A lot of Chelsea fans have called for the reinstatement of Costa but we wait to see how everything pans out for him.
