Diego Costa’s lawyer has revealed that he is set to do everything it takes to force through a summer move away from Chelsea for his client, report the Independent.
As the Independent report, Costa has previously claimed that he received a text message from Antonio Conte informing him that he was no longer in his plans. Chelsea have already replaced Costa by bringing in Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid.
The Independent believe that Costa leaving Chelsea is only a matter of time, and his lawyer, Ricardo Cardoso, is going to ensure the Spaniard will leave sooner rather than later.
The Independent quote Cardoso, who reveals: “We are going to activate all the legal mechanisms [to secure Costa’s exit] and formally present a transfer request.”
Costa was influential in two title triumphs during his time as a Chelsea player, and it will be a shame to see him leave. However, despite it being somewhat of a bitter end, he will leave a Premier League champion – which is the exit that he thoroughly deserves.
