Antonio Conte has stated that he decided to sell Chelsea striker, Diego Costa back in January.
Costa was reported to have had a falling out with Conte, when he rejected his move to China and he is expected to join Atletico Madrid.
The Chelsea manager has now made it known that he has no need for Costa and will very much like to sell him.
“I don’t like to talk about players who are not here,” Conte told reporters ahead of Saturday’s game against Arsenal in Beijing.
“The only thing I can tell you is that in January, the Costa situation was very clear, for the club for him and his agent. For me, the situation is closed.”
