Chelsea hotshot Diego Costa, has rejected a move to the Italian Serie A to join Juventus. Reports this morning were claiming that the Italian giants enquired if the striker would be willing to join them next season, but he turned them down.
Juventus want Costa to replace Mario Mandzukic because he is strong and powerfully built like the Croatian, But Costa is not interested.
Per the source, Costa knows that he would have to play second fiddle to Gonzalo Higuain who was signed for £75 Million last summer.
Chelsea are expecting to sell Costa next season, as the striker looks to have been distracted by the interest shown in him from the Chinese League last January. He is yet to hit the form he showed after joining the club and has scored only three goals this year. Chelsea have already started identifying replacements for him, with an imminent return of Romelu Lukaku on the cards.
Costa has admitted that he looked for a move away from Chelsea last summer. According to him, he missed Madrid and felt he was attracting unwanted attention from English referees, and he did not like the fact that he was always banned from featuring in games.
