Diego Costa could be set for AC Milan transfer
AC Milan have confirmed they have held talks over a move for Chelsea striker Diego
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.”
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.
