Chelsea striker Diego Costa has claimed that reports linking him with a move to the Chinese Super League are wide of the mark, while also hitting out at those circulating the rumours.
The Spain international had a training ground dispute with a member of the Blues' backroom staff last month and reportedly asked for a move away.
Costa was supposedly offered £30m a year in wages to join Tianjin Quanjian, but boss Antonio Conte remained firm and refused to let his star striker leave midway through the Premier League season.
Fresh reports emerged on Friday morning in the Spanish press suggesting that, while the 28-year-old remains a Chelsea player for now, a pre-contract has been agreed and he will be on his way in the summer.
Costa has taken to Instagram to seemingly brush aside these claims, though, posting a message in both English and Portuguese that reads, "They talk too much shit!!!".
