However, Costa and Chelsea appear to be going their separate ways this summer, leaving Conte with a huge gap to fill heading into the 2017/18 campaign.

The Blues will be travelling to China and Singapore, where they will face Arsenal, Bayern Munich, and Inter Milan.

Given that his transfer value has only risen by £10 million at Chelsea despite winning two Premier League medals and one League Cup triumph in 2015, Costa seems to have reached his expiry date in England.

It has been rumored since last Summer that the Spaniard Diego Costa felt unsettled in London.

Despite his aggression and on-field antics, there is no doubt that since joining the Blues from Atletico Madrid in 2014, Diego Costa has been sensational for the champions.

Costa scored 20 goals in the Premier League last season, and with Chelsea not competing in Europe, Conte was able to call on his main striker in most league fixtures.

Costa has been linked with a return to Atleti in recent weeks.

Lukaku has since signed for Manchester United and Costa. well, Costa doesn't look like reporting for preseason training any time soon.

The Serbian Nemanja Matic is set to be sold after Tiemoue Bakayoko is all but confirmed a Chelsea player. A hefty price tag for the Brazilian has lead to Chelsea breaking the bank in their offers, but Juventus has rejected their offers so far.

Having him in place to play in the second half of the season will be incredibly useful for Atletico, so it's likely they will strike a deal this summer, and they'll hope he can pick up where he left off with them.
