Diego Costa has refused to rule out a summer move to China despite his excellent form with Chelsea this season.

The 28-year-old has been a vital part of Antonio Conte’s side’s push for the Premier League title, scoring 17 league goals and providing five assists.

Chelsea are 10 points clear of nearest rivals Tottenham Hotspur at the top of the league, with just 10 games to go and look set to lift the trophy come the end of the season.

The Blues will also almost certainly return to the Champions League as they lie 17 points clear of fifth-placed Manchester United.

But despite enjoying a terrific year in English football, Costa has refused to guarantee that he’ll stay at the club and would not rule out a move to China.

When asked if he would move to the Far East in the summer, he told Cadena SER: ‘In life everything can happen, do not close the door to anyone.

‘Now I’m doing very well at Chelsea but do not rule out anything in the future.’
