According to Sky Sports News, Diego Costa and Nemanja Matic will not travel to the Far East for the club's pre-season tour.
Besides if he does pop up at Chelsea, their front three would read - Eden Hazard, Yannick Carrasco, Pedro: all of whom are most comfortable on the wings. unless of course, Conte wants to pull a Guardiola-Messi and turn Eden Hazard into a false nine.
It has been rumored since last Summer that the Spaniard Diego Costa felt unsettled in London.
Diego Costa has fueled speculation over his imminent Chelsea exit as he was spotted partying in an old Atletico Madrid jersey. In January it almost pushed him for a transfer to Chinese side Tianjin Quanjian, but he finished out the year and helped the Blues secure the Premier League title. The Blues went after Everton's Romelu Lukaku, but the Belgian opted to move to Manchester United instead.
The former Atletico Madrid man has been heavily linked with a move to AC.
Signs point to his next destination being in Italy, where he may join the Serie A champions Juventus.
However, Costa's return to Atletico cannot be actualized this summer as the Spanish club are currently serving transfer ban till January 2017. Blues boss Antonio Conte managed to persuade him to stay for the title run-in, but a move now seems inevitable.
