Antonio Conte Chelsea has been one of the strongest sides this season as they stand in the first place in the points table with just more than 10 games to go.

The manager spent a decent amount of money on his squad at the start of the season and brought in the likes of N Golo Kante, David Luiz and Marcos Alonso, who have all managed to cement a place in the starting XI this season.

However with Chelsea no qualifying for the Champions League, Conte is ready to spend with yet again in the summer and has been linked with some of the biggest stars in world football.

Spanish striker Diego Costa has been terrific in front of goal for the Blues this season but he has been constantly linked with an exit in the summer, especially with Chelsea rejecting a mega bid from China in January.

But according to reports from the Sun, Conte is now ready to offload the former Atletico Madrid man to fund his incoming transfers this summer.

The Italian manager is in desperate search of top class strikers to add to his squad in the summer and this report claims that he is now ready to replace Costa with a couple of stars.

According to this report, Conte wants to sell Diego Costa to fund the incoming transfers of Real Madrid star Alvaro Morata and Everton want-away Romelu Lukaku.

Spanish star Alvaro Morata has not been regular in the first team under Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid and has been looking for an exit in the summer.

A number of top clubs will be interested in his signature but Chelsea are currently front runners and Conte is now determined to land him in a mega bid at the end of the season.

Lukaku, on the other hand, has only a couple of days ago revealed that he wants to quit Everton in the summer and Chelsea his former club, are hoping to sign him for a fee around 60m at the end of the season.

Neither of those prices is outside the reach of Chelsea but Conte is determined to make more signings and is ready to offload Costa to help fund these signings,

Ironically, Spaniard might actually join Real Madrid with Zidane also looking for some striking additions. But do you think Conte should let Costa leave and spend on Morata and Lukaku in the summer?
