Antonio Conte desperately wants a new striker and is keen on agreeing a deal for Morata or Aubameyang as Diego Costa has been given the opportunity to find a new club – with Atletico Madrid in pole position to secure the signatures of the Spanish hit-man.

Costa had taken a U-turn and was willing to have showdown talks with boss Antonio Conte.

The former Atletico Madrid man wanted to make peace with Conte, but the Italian manager has made it clear that he does not want him to stay at the club.

La Liga giants Atletico Madrid are desperate to rope in Diego Costa on the cheap and it is believed that Chelsea would suffer a loss of £50m if the move happens.

It is believed that Chelsea will face an uphill task in recovering the £32m they splurged for roping in Costa three years ago after he publicly disclosed that he is no more in Conte’s plans for the next season.

Costa has been given a week off to secure his switch to Atletico Madrid.

The Blues could have easily raked in £76m by selling Costa to Chinese Super League club Tianjin Quanjian in the last winter transfer window.

But now it seems very difficult as the Spanish striker went public to reveal that he is not wanted at Chelsea.

And the Spanish club had capitalised upon this opportunity and have offered only £22m plus add-ons which is less than a THIRD of the £76m transfer fee that the Chinese Super League club Tianjian Quanjian had offered.

Costa and Antonio Conte’s relationship deteriorated over the course of last season.

Chelsea have turned down Atletico’s initial bid of of £22m as they want to recover the money they had splurged to sign Costa three years ago.

The La Liga club can still buy new players but they cannot register them due to a Fifa transfer embargo which will end in January 2018.

There has been reports that claim that  Costa could join Besiktas on loan until the start of 2018 – and then move back to Atletico Madrid when the transfer embargo is lifted in January.
