AC Milan have spoken to Diego Costa’s agent this summer – but chairman Marco Fassone remains tight-lipped over a move for the Chelsea striker.

Costa seems certain to leave Stamford Bridge this summer after being told he has no future under boss Antonio Conte.

Former club Atletico Madrid are leading the chase for Costa with the striker recently uploading a video of him dancing in the club’s colours.

But their transfer ban is proving an issue and Milan have been tipped to take advantage.

It has even been suggested that Costa could move to Italy on loan until January before moving to Atletico.

Milan chief Fassone

And Milan chairman Fassone said: “Diego Costa is a great player – but he is a Chelsea player and I would prefer to avoid talking about players from other teams.

“We went to see 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.”

He uploaded a clip to Instagram as he was put through his pace by two assistants.

The striker was tied to a harness as he completed some basic volleying exercises.
