Costa told to apologise by Chelsea team-mates - reports

Diego Costa is understood to be unsettled at Chelsea.

DIEGO COSTA HAS been urged to apologise for his falling out with Antonio Conte by his Chelsea team-mates, according to the Daily Telegraph.

The Spain international is set to miss Saturday’s clash against Leicester City following a bust-up with Conte and the club’s fitness coach.

Reports also suggest Costa has had his head turned by interest from China, but his club-mates have urged him to forget about leaving until the summer.

The former Atletico Madrid striker is set to hold talks with Conte next week in the hope the air can be cleared following a tumultuous week.

Meanwhile, Costa has responded to the storm surrounding his Chelsea future by offering a simple Instagram post.

It is understood that Costa is also the subject of interest from the Chinese Super League and could pocket a reported £30 million a year by making the switch to the Far East.

In a bid, no doubt, to quash such speculation, the former Atletico Madrid ace has taken to social media with a simple message.

“Come on Chelsea,” he posted mere hours after the news of his axing broke.

Costa has been a vital player for Conte’s side so far this season, netting 14 times in the Premier League to put himself clear at the top of the scoring ranks ahead of Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez and Manchester United’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
