Chelsea striker Diego Costa is set to join Serie A giants AC Milan this summer, according to latest reports.
SkySports have revealed that AC Milan are discussing with Costa’s agent Jorge Mendes for the possible summer move.
It is believed that Chelsea will agree a lower fee also as they are trying to get rid of the Spaniard despite of a great last season.
Costa has been doing solo training in Brazil, he didn’t travel with the squad for their pre-season tour to Asia as boss Antonio Conte excluded him from the squad.
Chelsea have already signed Costa’s replacement Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid for a bumper fee around £70million.
Spanish side Atletico Madrid were also said to be taking interest in their former star striker but due to transfer ban they have taken a step back. The transfer ban is expected to be lifted in January.
The 28-year-old is not part of Conte’s next season plan despite of his incredible performance last season.
The two time Premier League winner has scored 58 goals since his big move from Atletico Madrid few years ago.
AC Milan are confident that they will close the deal in the next few days.
