Diego Costa expected for preseason training on Monday

However, it is well known that Costa doesn't see eye-to-eye with Blues boss Antonio Conte and, according to The Telegraph's report, the fiery Brazilian-born Spanish worldwide has said his goodbye to his soon to be former teammates.

Spanish global soccer star Diego Costa is reportedly ready to have showdown talks with Chelsea manager Antonio Conte over his future at Stamford Bridge.

Having missed out on signing Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United, it may well be best to try and keep hold of Costa, but ESPN report that he has little interest remaining in SW6 next season.

Despite the fact that the Spaniard played a fundamental role in helping Chelsea win the Premier League title last season, controversy was sparked earlier this summer when reports claimed Conte had sent him a text informing him that he was no longer part of his plans at Stamford Bridge.

DIEGO Costa has already begun saying goodbye to his Chelsea team-mates as the Blues face up to a striker crisis.

While Costa looks increasingly likely to sign for Atletico Madrid when their transfer ban is lifted in January, the Blues still feel they may have a last minute shot at Lukaku. He arrived at Chelsea from Atleti for about $42 million after a 27-goal season in 2013-14, and scored 59 goals in 120 matches (though his production outside the Premier League left much to be desired). In contrast, although a return to Atletico Madrid has been touted, he wouldn't be able to play until January, which could harm his chances of making the World Cup squad next summer.
