Milan enter Costa race

Sky Sports UK claims Milan are in talks with the agent of Chelsea striker Diego Costa.

The Spanish international has revealed that he’s no longer part of Antonio Conte’s plans, something the former Italy CT allegedly told him by text.

The striker is keen to return to Atletico Madrid, but they can’t sign players until January due to a transfer ban, and it’s unlikely Costa would want to spend six months on the sidelines.

According to Sky Sports though, Milan are in talks with his agent, Jorge Mendes, about a possible deal.

The Rossoneri have shown interest in Alvaro Morata and Andrea Belotti, but their respective price tags of €90m and €100m are outside the Diavolo’s means.

Costa would not come cheap either, but the 28-year-old’s desire to leave could lower the cost.
