According to the Sun, Diego Costa has told friends that he has had enough of the gloomy weather in London and will look to quit Chelsea at the end of the season, despite the fact that Chelsea are now very close to clinching a Premier League title.
In somewhat Federation Internationale de Football Association 17 career mode-style reports, Costa is apparently not impressed with the lack of sun in England - and hasn't been since moving to the Premier League nearly three seasons ago, which could lead to him seeking a move to warmer shores at the end of the current campaign. "We all know where we are going, we are all going in the same direction and that's very important".

"We have a week to rest a little bit and then prepare, that's what we have to be focused on these days". "But I'm not saying I'm happy with my life in London, because that is something totally different".
Having been the subject of huge transfer speculation from China, with super-league side Tianjin Quanjian believed to be ready to offer the player a staggering £600,000-a-week salary to make the move to the Far-East, many observers feel that these next few weeks will be his last in the Premier League. Last summer, media consistently linked Diego Costa with a potential return to Atletico Madrid.
It was not the best performance the Chelsea striker has produced this season, but his side maintained their seven-point lead at the top of the Premier League table despite an off-day from the Spain global. "I am in a team that is winning and that motivates me even more". "It's good to play with this pressure because it means we are fighting for titles and trying to stay up there", Alonso added.
