Another day, another Diego Costa exit rumor.  This time it's the Telegraph's Matt Law behind the wheel and there sure are strong words in the headline.  Desperate, I tells ya, desperate!

Antonio Conte has assured Chelsea he can return the club to the Champions League at the first attempt, but Diego Costa remains desperate to quit Stamford Bridge at the end of the season.

...Costa [is] hoping to return to Atletico Madrid [...] fed up with life in England and non-stop scrutiny over his discipline.

Once Costa does leave, the FA and their cronies in the media can have themselves a nice champagne social and celebrate the fact that they've managed to hound Diego out of the English game.  Quite literally from day 1 Costa has been painted as the villain, a conniving diver and no-talent evil provocateur who's only aim is to bring the game in disrepute with his antics.  Well done, lads.  Mission accomplished.

(Atlético Madrid or PSG the rumor destinations, as before.  Or it's just more of the usual nonsense.)
