The striker has become convinced his future lies away from the Blues and has told friends he will not sign a new deal at Stamford Bridge

Diego Costa will stay at Chelsea until the end of the season after calling a truce with Antonio Conte – but he will then quit the club in the summer, according to The Sun.

Costa has now told friends he will not sign a new deal at Chelsea and is convinced his future lies away from Stamford Bridge.
