Soccer – Costa keen to leave Chelsea

Chelsea striker Diego Costa has revealed that Blues boss Antonio Conte has told him he can leave the club. Costa, who scored 22 goals in all competitions in 2016/17 as Chelsea won the Premier League title, was linked with a move to China in January. The 28-year-old Spain international striker has now said: "I had a simple little message on my mobile from Conte in which he said that he isn't counting on me for next season. "I'm on the market and so I'm looking for a team. If the coach doesn't want you, you have to leave." Chelsea are 10/3 with bet365 to win the Premier League title again in 2017/18 while Manchester United can be backed at 3/1.
