Chelsea striker Diego Costa is ready to continue his feud with the Blues as the Telegraph claims he will not be willing to play for the club this league season despite being included in Chelsea’s 25-man squad list for the current Premier League season.

As per Daily Telegraph, Chelsea included Diego Costa in their squad list to reduce the impact his legal representatives will have in their effort to force a move away from London, as it means the West London club are not blocking the Spaniard from playing for them.

Costa had said previously he is willing to return to Spanish side Atletico Madrid after receiving a text message from Antonio Conte back in June, that he was not part of Conte’s plans this League season.

That text from the Chelsea head Coach has sparked trouble between both camps, which eventually saw the striker in Brazil, against Chelsea’s requests and demands to return for pre-season.

The Blues seem set to make Costa available for first team action with their latest action, but Costa is still persistent, the Brazil-born Spaniard will not play under the Italian tactician wants to leave the club by January.

Atletico Madrid were locked in discussions to sign the 28-year old striker from Chelsea in the summer, but failed before the summer transfer deadline and will now have to wait till new year.

Diego Costa is still in Brazil, and according to the Telegraph, he will remain in his homeland and defy Chelsea’s orders.
