Diego Costa has been included in Chelsea’s 25-man squad for the 2017/18 Premier League campaign, despite the exiled striker having a frosty relationship with manager Antonio Conte, according to the Daily Mail.

As per the Daily Mail, Costa has camped himself in his home town, Lagarto, in Brazil. He is thought to be refusing to return to Chelsea training following the deterioration of his relationship with Conte.

However, despite the rift between the two big characters, Chelsea have dropped a major hint that there could be a way back for Costa at Stamford Bridge. The Daily Mail report that he has been included in Chelsea’s Premier League squad, suggesting that Conte has had a change of heart and intends to use him for the upcoming campaign.

What a bizarre end this would be to one of the most prolonged transfer sagas in recent memory. Would you like to see Costa back in a Chelsea shirt? We would!

Get real. He will never play for Chelsea again. Including him in the squad is just to give validity to the breach of contract lawsuit CFC are about to hit him with.

I think he will add value to the squad but he should also be civil in his conduct.

Costa will give strength in depth to this Chelsea side and we can win the champions league with him around because we shall not only have a strong defense and midfield but also a prolific attack.

Coasta is an employee with no choice. He has to obey the rule of Chelsea or else let him pay the penalty.

He’s a prolific striker with all the assets a modern finisher should possess,plus more! It’s sad to see him leave; even more so,the in acrimonious circumstances.I wish he would eat some ‘humble pie’ and make us regret that he will soon leave the club!

He’ll be a good addition despite being a stubborn chap. I pray he cools down and join the squad. That could change a lot positively for Chelsea.
