SPANISH media have revealed the details of Diego Costa’s alleged text message from Antonio Conte.
Costa, 28, revealed Chelsea want to sell him after Spain’s 2-2 draw with Colombia on Tuesday.
He claimed Conte had sent a message telling him he was no longer in his plans at Stamford Bridge.
And Spanish outlet AS now claim to have obtained the text message Costa reportedly received from his manger.
It read: “Hi Diego, I hope you are well.
“Thanks for the season we spent together.
“Good luck for the next year but you are not in my plans.”
Costa was linked with a move to China throughout the January transfer window.
But he went on to remain in west London and helped fire the Blues to the Premier League title.
Everton’s Romelu Lukaku could arrive as his direct replacement at Stamford Bridge.
The Belgium international revealed earlier this week that he has already decided where he wants to play next season.
“I don’t want to stay at the same level,” said Lukaku, who scored 25 league goals for the Toffees last season.
“I want to improve and I know where I want to do that.”
