Diego Costa says he won't go to China, only to Atletico Mardid

"I will only leave Chelsea for Atletico".

CHELSEA lost 2-1 to Arsenal in the FA Cup final today, but how did each individual get on? I'm not interested in other clubs.

Costa, Chelsea's top scorer as they won the Premier League this season, played two games for Brazil in 2013 but switched to Spain a year later after being granted Spanish citizenship and represented them at the 2014 World Cup.

"If I have to move to another city or another country than Spain, I don't think I'll go, I'd rather stay at Chelsea".

Speculation over Costa's future has remained since a January bust-up with boss Antonio Conte came against the backdrop of mega-money interest from Chinese side Tianjin Quanjian.

He did however, say that he is well aware he would be on the move if the club do spend big on a new striker in the summer, which is a possibility.

Kyrie Irving's 42 points spark Cavs' comeback win over Celtics
The entire defense breaks down on the Smart screen because Smith gets caught out of position and allows an easy drive and kick. The Cavaliers outscored the Celtics by 17 with Irving on the floor during his magical third quarter. "We had opportunities.

'Everyone know what my preferred club is, there's nothing to hide. I have a contract and no intention of leaving, but if there are changes to be made that might reduce my chance. I'm good over here.

'I guess we were a little off coming into the match, while Arsenal showed they wanted to win it, ' he said.

"If the club really want to sell me, there's only one team for me".

Atleti are very close to agreeing terms with Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette, and Kevin Gameiro will make way if everything goes ahead as they plan.

However, the Chinese Super League (CSL) outfit have repeatedly denied that they are in talks with Costa and last week released another statement to confirm that there had not been any form of communication or negotiation with the player or his representatives over the last six months.
