Wantaway Chelsea striker Diego Costa, has revealed that manager Antonio Conte has asked him to leave Stamford Bridge, as he does not have a future at the club.

However, Conte has told him to look for a new club, amid reports linking the Blues with a bid for Everton striker Romelu Lukaku.

Costa told the media following Spain’s 2-2 friendly draw with Colombia on Wednesday;

“Antonio Conte has told me by message that I will not continue with Chelsea and that’s it.

“My relationship with the coach has been bad this season and it is clear that he does not want me on the team.

“I guess I have had such a bad season that I can’t continue.

“Right now I’m a Chelsea player because I have a contract, but the coach does not want me there. I have to find a new team.”

When asked whether a return to Atletico is next on the cards for him, Costa added:

“Five months without playing? I do not know, it’s complicated.

“But people know that I love Atletico a lot and that I love living in Madrid.

“It would be nice to go back, but it’s difficult to go four or five months without playing and it’s a World Cup year.
