Liverpool urged to sign Diego Costa on loan by Phil Thompson

"The lawyer's argument that Antonio as a coach has forced the player out by text message in June is just nonsense".

While boasting an impressive scoring record of 52 goals in 89 league games for the Blues, his tendency to explode in fits of rage from the slightest of provocations led the 28-year-old to be rather unpopular among the fans of opposition teams.

Costa wants to guarantee that he will be part of Spain's Russian Federation 2018 squad next year, and has been told by Conte that he wasn't a part of his plans. Since then he has been heavily linked with a move back to his former club, but it keeps stalling because Athletico Madrid can't have any new player till January due to a ban.

"And I think only one player is not enough to improve our team". For me it's very simple, the situation. The player knew the decision, his agent knew the decision, clearly the lawyer has not been well informed.

The reason for Bale's apparent impending exit from the Bernabeu is the arrival of Kylian Mbappe, with Real Madrid determined to land the player this summer and fend off interest from the Premier League and of course Barcelona.

However, the clubs are yet to reach an agreement over his services, with the Guardian recently claiming that Chelsea are demanding around £40m to cash in on.

"We are going to use all legal mechanisms to hold Chelsea accountable for this behaviour, making it possible for Diego Costa to leave", Cardoso said.

He added that they would formally request a transfer.

"Chelsea has not just not denied nor corrected the coach, either in public or private, but instead renewed his contract".

Recent reports from Italy have claimed that AC Milan could also join the race but Costa's lawyer made it clear that the Spaniard's priority is to return to La Liga.

The Chelsea striker has been told that he is not part of Antonio Conte's plans for the upcoming season and is now in talks with AC Milan. It has already been passed on to those responsible several times.

"At the moment moment, he does not want to play for a club other than Atletico Madrid".
