Chelsea striker Diego Costa has dropped fresh hints that he could leave the club in the summer.
The Blues star suggested that although he is happy at Chelsea, but that doesn’t necessarily mean he is happy with life in London.
The former Atletico Madrid striker was the center of a huge bid by Chinese Super League side Tianjin Quanjian in the January transfer window, but Chelsea shot the offer down.
Costa was set to be offered huge wages in the far-east, but Blues owner Roman Abramovich was not budged by the mega-money offer.
Diego Costa was set to be offers wages up-to £600,000-a-week by the CSL outfit.
Diego has scored 17 goals in the Premier League this season – but the talisman has failed to find the back of the net in his last five outings.
The Chinese side are reported to still be interested in the Brazil born star and will most likely return in the summer, while Chelsea have identified Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez and Everton forward Romelu Lukaku as the ideal replacement for the Spaniard.
The Blues marksman said: “I am happy at Chelsea, I am not necessarily saying that I am happy with my life in London. But that is something totally different. It has nothing to do with it.”
The 28-year-old has two-years left on his current contract with Chelsea.
He said: “I have another two years on my contract. I am always very honest with those close to me. I tell them that I am very happy at Chelsea.”
“The club gives me a lot, the fans, the team-mates. I am in a team that is winning and that motivates me even more.”
“Last season was not the best, not just for me but for other players and for Chelsea. This year I hope will be different, that we win titles.”
“If you are in a team that is winning, you always want to stay, for the allotted amount of time.”
