Costa.

The 28-year-old has been train­ing alone in Brazil as he waits for his fu­ture to be sorted.

Costa wants to sign for Atletico Madrid but ow­ing to their trans­fer ban is will­ing to join an­other club on a tem­po­rary ba­sis un­til Jan­uary. Mi­lan have spo­ken to Costa's agent Jorge Men­des and the Ital­ian club's Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Marco Fas­sone said: “I would pre­fer to avoid talking about play­ers from other teams; Diego Costa is a great player, but a Chelsea player. “We went to see Costa's agent, Jorge Men­des, there is a lot you can talk to him about. Costa is a great player but he is of Chelsea. That's all.”

Of­fered

Atletico are un­der­stood to have of­fered around £26mil­lion for Costa while Chelsea value him at around £55m.

Mi­lan's other names on their list are Nikola Kalinic at Fiorentina, An­drea Belotti at Torino and Pierre Em­er­ick Aubameyang though he is more likely for China in Jan­uary as things stand.
