AC Milan chief Marco Fassone has hinted at interest in signing Chelsea outcast Diego Costa.
It has even been suggested that Costa could go to Italy on loan until January before moving to Atletico Madrid.
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.”
