He scored a very important goal in Skopje to play his part in Spain’s 2-1 win there, and after the game he couldn’t avoid answering questions regarding his future.
I don’t know
was Diego Costa’s very short answer, when asked by a TVE reporter where he will be playing next season.
Looking rather frustrated and disappointed, the Spain international answered another relevant question, about how are things between him and Chelsea at the moment.
I have two years left on my contract with Chelsea, they have to realise what they want to do with me. I have to wait to see what decision the club makes
he said. A few days ago, Costa revealed that he had received a text message from Chelsea manager Antonio Conte, who, in a single sentence, informed him that he’s not included in his plans for next season.
Costa forwarded the text message to those in the club he felt should deal with the situation, but it’s been some days now, and he’s still to receive a call from anyone from the club.
Going to Atletico Madrid would be an option, if the Spanish side could sign new players this summer. They can’t. Milan look interested in giving him the chance to play in Italy, but Costa hasn’t said anything in public about the prospect of playing for this specific Italian team, who are not going through their best moment at present.
