Costa was reportedly sent a text message telling that he is not in the plans of the manager next season and that he is not wanted by Chelsea anymore.
This has effectively ended his stay at the Stamford Bridge but there will be no shortage of suitors for him this summer.
A couple of Chinese clubs will swoop in with their offer but at the moment Arsenal and Manchester United are interested in his signature alongside the cash-rich AC Milan this summer.
The Italian giants have overseen a Chinese takeover recently and are set to spend big this summer.

The Spanish giants will not be able to keep Antoine Griezmann at the club for too long and are looking for replacements next season.

Spanish outlet Don Balon now claim that Diego Simeone’s side want Costa to join AC Milan on a loan deal so that they can sign him up in January.
t is said the striker’s agent, Jorge Mendes, is already in talks with the Italian side over a loan move away from the capital this summer.
The Spanish giants are reportedly ready to pay £43m for his services and it will be interesting to see if they are able to sign him up in the next couple of transfer windows.
