The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are expecting Diego Costa to leave the club this summer…
Recent comments from the forward made it seem as though Antonio Conte was planning on off-loading him this summer, whilst continued links with Everton forward Romelu Lukaku may leave no space in the Chelsea squad for the Spaniard this summer.
Now, it seems as though the chances of him leaving are even higher, with Sky Sports correspondent Kaveh Solhekol reporting on Twitter that AC Milan are in talks with Costa’s representatives over a move to the club.

Whilst Diego Costa is said to be just one potential target for the club, the Italian giants are clearly very interested in a move. It’s easy to see why, too, given that Costa bagged 20 Premier League goals last season. If Milan are looking to regain their position amongst some of Europe’s best clubs, they could certainly do worse than sign Costa.
The deal could also make sense from Chelsea’s perspective, with Romelu Lukaku said to be keen on a move to Stamford Bridge. Given that the Belgian bagged more goals than Costa last season, with 25 goals in the Premier League, the Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are viewing the potential signing of Lukaku as a clear upgrade.
