Where has it all gone wrong for Antonio Conte's Chelsea?

Costa, 27, found out by text message at the end of last season that he was no longer in Conte's plans, despite scoring 20 goals during the club's Premier League-winning campaign.

There seems to be no way back at Chelsea for the club's top scorer last season, Diego Costa, who remains in Brazil and has not reported back to Cobham since the Blues won the title last May.

"Why won't they let me go if they don't want me?" he told the Daily Mail on Monday.

In a recent interview with Sportsmail, Costa claims that the Chelsea manager has been treating him "like a criminal" while adding that 'I am waiting for Chelsea to set me free. He had a great season in Madrid and actually with the way this insane transfer market is, I think they got a good price for a young and talented forward.

Chelsea have fined Diego Costa two weeks' wages for failing to return to training as the dispute over his future rumbles on, according to reports.

"You don't send him a text and say "off you pop, we don't want you to come back". I said, "If the manager doesn't want me, I want to go to Atletico Madrid". "My idea would be to go to Madrid, train there, get in the best physical shape and be ready to fire ahead of the World Cup".

Newcastle United are expected to sign Kenedy on loan amid competition from an unnamed club but Antonio Conte has slowed the deal down due to concerns over his squad size, Goal understands. No, it was Antonio Conte's Chelsea side eating shit in hilarious and futile fashion to fucking Burnley, the team who scored the fewest goals of any top-flight team that escaped relegation a year ago. I've spoken to Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia. I was happy. When the manager does not want you, you have to go.

Costa said if the club did not allow him to move before the transfer window he was prepared to see out his contract unpaid in Brazil. He asked for that to happen.

Costa said he respected Conte's soccer mind but basically called him a moron, a dick, and a coward. "Chelsea's hierarchy are entitled not to be very impressed with a manager who they have just handed an improved contract to, and are entitled to be aggrieved that he is just causing problems". He has done a good job and I can see that, but as a person, no. But for as much as Eden Hazard, Diego Costa, and Pedro impressed going forward last season, the bedrock of their title challenge was the defence. I was given an extra week off and then constantly fine. "He doesn't possess charisma".

It is very clear.
