Costa revealed that Conte had informed him he was not in his plans for the coming season.

Chelsea have not yet signed a replacement for Costa, but have been linked with wanting to snap up Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata.

The Spain international won his second Premier League title last season after a return of 20 goals in 35 games under Antonio Conte.

But the frustration that Conte is experiencing now is precisely the same as that which his predecessor Jose Mourinho endured two summers ago.

He recently revealed that he wants to play, preferably for his former club.

Ronaldo asked for a move away from Real at the start of the summer after being hit with a bill for his taxes by the Spanish legal system. Zidane's side land in L.A. on Tuesday and, perhaps awkwardly for Morata, will be training a stone's throw from United, who are also using the facilities at UCLA this summer.

The Spanish giants are in desperate need of extra millions to launch a mega bid for Mbappe, who is priced at £132 million by Monaco, and Kovacic is the perfect source to get them.

The player has been eager to leave Santiago Bernabeu this summer, as he searches for game time and a club offering to make him their number one man. Chelsea, meanwhile, are without a main striker and certified goal scorer in their ranks, and thus, this deal provides a win-win situation for all involved.

Mourinho's men have been at Drake Stadium since arriving in California, while Champions League winners Madrid will begin training on Wednesday within 200 metres of United at the college's North Athletic Field.

I'd pay money to be a fly on the wall there.

Barcelona transfer target Marco Verratti hasn't given up hope of joining the Catalan club, despite PSG posting a video of him committing his future to his current side.
